Dear Consultative Group Members,

Warm greetings from a sweltering Washington DC.

1. UCLG Africa

This is a very brief email, with two items - the first is an announcement from UCLG, outlining recent progress in Africa, where there is now one, representative body with new leadership, and headquarters in Rabat, Morocco.  The Cities Alliance both provided financial support to, and was represented at, the UCLG Pan-African Assembly held in Abjua in March 2010.
