USUDS cities
Associate cities
Other Medcities Members


USUDS is made by cities and for cities. It is the product of two decades of city-to-city cooperation within the framework of MedCities.

Cities are the core of the USUDS initiative. The empowerment of local authorities through the development of city development strategies which reinforce their capabilities is behind the logics of the whole project. 

USUDS is currently constituted by 7 cities from the three shores of the Mediterranean but we look forward to significantly increase this number in the coming months.
