United Cities and Local Governments Asia-Pacific (UCLG ASPAC) is based in Jakarta, Indonesia. The organisation is the key knowledge management hub on local government issues in the region.

UCLG is a worldwide association of local government organisations that dates back to 1913. UCLG is the only local government organisation recognised by the United Nations, and nominates 10 out of 20 members of UNACLA, the first advisory body of local authorities affiliated with the UN.

The Asia and Pacific region is the biggest of the eight sections in UCLG with linkages to more than 7,000 local governments. It represents well over 3.76 billion people - more than half of the world population - and incorporates economically fast developing countries such as China, India and Indonesia.

UCLG ASPAC is the united voice and advocate of democratic local self-government which promotes cooperation between governments and within the wider international community in the Asia-Pacific region.
