The Municipal Alliance for Peace (MAP) is a network which exists to promote peace in the Middle East. It was set up in June 2005, at a conference in The Hague, to encourage municipal cooperation between Palestinian and Israeli local authorities through joint initiatives of the Association of Palestinian Local Authorities (APLA)[1] and the Union of Local Authorities of Israel (ULAI).[2] The MAP seeks to involve municipalities in other countries to cooperate in these joint projects.

It is run by a Board, composed of the following members:

- Association of Palestinian Local Authorities (APLA)

- Union of Local Authorities of Israel (ULAI)

- UNDP Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People (UNDP/PAPP)

- United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG)

- Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM)

- European Network of Local Authorities for Peace in the Middle East (ELPME)

- City of Hamar

- City of Rome

- City of Barcelona

- City of Cologne.

At the first World Conference on City Diplomacy, in The Hague in June 2008, a detailed presentation of MAP was given as a case study in this type of cooperation.[3]

The Alliance secretariat has an office in Jerusalem. It issues a regular newsletter.
