    United Cities and Local Government has members in two-thirds of the UN member states, including over 1000 leading cities and virtually all the existing national Local Government Associations in the world. Together, its members represent over half of the world’s total population. UCLG brings together local governments from every part of the globe – from the metropolis to the small town. All members pay an annual membership fee. The membership fees for local government members take into consideration the number of inhabitants represented by the member, and the state of the country´s economic development. The UCLG Executive Bureau approves all requests for membership and ensures that the candidates meet the required conditions. The membership of United Cities and Local Governments becomes effective upon payment of membership fees. UCLG has members form over the world. Over the last years, the relative share of collected membership fees from the various regions is in line with the goals fixed in 2007 for 2018. Those goals fixed a better and more balanced geographic distribution of financial support in terms of membership fees.
