A delegation from the Association of Local Government Authorities of Jamaica (ALGAJ) is scheduled to leave the country today for Port of Spain, Trinidad where they will participate in a European Union-sponsored Caribbean Local Government Forum conference.

The six-member delegation includes May Pen Mayor Councillor Winston Maragh, Montego Bay Mayor Councillor Homer Davis, Falmouth Mayor Councillor Collen Gager, Spanish Town Division Councillor and public relations officer for ALGAJ Kenisha Gordon, director of planning at the Trelawny Municipal Corporation Marlet Wellington, and director of planning at the St Thomas Municipal Corporation Jumaane Robinson.

Scheduled for December 5-7 at the Radison Hotel, the conference is being held under the theme 'Local government: A partner in achieving the sustainable development goals'.

According to ALGAJ, the Jamaica delegation will share local government best practices, as well as the localisation of sustainable development goals (SDGs) in St James, Trelawny, and St Thomas.

The delegation is also expected to highlight Jamaica's successes in local government reform and the way forward for the localisation of the SDGs, especially among the youth population.

The delegation is scheduled to return to Jamaica on Saturday, December 8.
