First U20 Sherpa Meeting

First Shepra Meeting

Representatives of city leaders from around the world met in Riyadh on 5th–6th February to discuss priority topics that will lay the foundation for the U20 2020 Mayors Summit later this year.

The First Sherpa Meeting brought together Sherpas and delegates and also featured a number of informal side meetings between officials. In addition to forging consensus on the U20 priorities topics, the event was the platform for highlighting the progress of the initiative since its handover to Riyadh, interactions with the G20 engagement groups and working groups, and for launching the U20 taskforces .
