Second U20 Sherpa Meeting

Shepra July

The cities of Riyadh and Houston virtually hosted the second U20 meeting of 2020 in July. The U20 mayors’ representatives-known as Sherpas - gathered to examine key policy recommendations and new content developed by three new multinational expert taskforces.

The Second Sherpa Meeting provided an opportunity to present the outcomes of the U20 taskforces, namely the 15 white papers and their key policy recommendations. A summary of the scope and expected outcomes of the Special Working Group on COVID-19 was presented by the co-chairing cities of Buenos Aires, New York, and Rome. The Second Sherpa Meeting provided a platform for the U20 cities to provide feedback on the draft Communiqué.
