ORU and ARDCI Presidents sign the “Call of Abidjan”
In 2015, an ORU Fogar Executive Bureau was already held in Abidjan. On that occasion, the regionalist meeting in Côte d'Ivoire, ratified the incorporation a few months earlier of ARDCI, the Assembly of Regions and Districts of Côte d'Ivoire, together with the Ivorian regions of Bélier and Sud Comoé, to ORU Fogar. The second Bureau in Abidjan, last April 25, was very different from the first one. ORU Fogar now has many more members among the Ivorian regions and a consolidated work in the country.

In our quest for sustainable and equitable progress, the international community has defined a global vision, embodied in the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) it contains. How do we get there? That is a question that has no predefined answer. It is context dependent, and therefore what holds true in one place is not necessarily true somewhere else. For inspiration, we have traditionally looked to broad global or national strategies. However, we must not overlook the pivotal role of local and regional governments in driving our collective future. For the successful realization of sustainable development and the 2030 Agenda, it is imperative that development is not just conceptualized, but translated and implemented at local and regional levels.
