Launch of the 7th issue of the D+ magazine

The UCLG Committee on Decentralisation and Local Self-Government has published a new issue of D+ magazine, a publication specialising in topics associated with decentralisation and local governability around the world.

This new edition includes articles on local challenges for a new Brazil; the city as territory for innovation; strategic planning for international action by European local governments; and reflections on the ‘smart city’ model. It also analyses the book The Metropolitan Revolution, by the authors Bruce Katz and Jennifer Bradley.

The edition includes an interview with Bruce Katz, vice-president of the Brookings Institution and director of the Metropolitan Policy Program, and highlights the best practices of the international projection plans for municipalities in the Barcelona area and the objectives they propose.
