The Mayors for Economic Growth (M4EG) Facility, a joint initiative of the EU & UNDP, is an invitation to reimagine urban and local spaces for positive transformative change and future-readiness. The M4EG was launched in 2017 for local authorities in the Eastern Partnership, and the current phase is implemented by UNDP.
Local authorities that are members of the M4EG receive new learning and networking opportunities. This includes a new generation of Local Economic Development Plans, moving from a project to a “portfolio of options” approach to tackle complex challenges, innovation mentoring and grants. It will all come together and be shared under the newly deployed Urban Learning Centre.
