Oceania Cycling Confederation endorses Union Cycliste Internationale Agenda 2022
The Oceania Cycling Confederation (OCC) endorses the Agenda 2022 strategic principles announced by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) following the second UCI Management Committee meeting of 2018 in Arzon, France.
Increased resources for the UCI’s International Relations Service, the creation of the Solidarity and Emerging Cycling Countries Commission, and the strengthening of the UCI Solidarity Programme will see growing resources and opportunities for developing nations including Oceania Member Federations in the Pacific island region.
As the first and only Continental Confederation with a female president, the OCC applauds the Agenda 2022 priorities to strengthen gender inclusion. The UCI’s commitment to achieving gender equality in all areas of the sport continues with the creation of a Gender Equality Charter encompassing all gender equality initiatives within the sport, administration, governance and sector.
“The OCC is delighted with the progressive agenda for cycling worldwide confirmed by the UCI President David Lappartient, encompassing many areas of importance for cycling nations in the Oceania region including a solidarity program for developing countries and concrete commitment to gender equality throughout the sport with specific initiatives being announced today. There is more to come as Agenda 2022 is unveiled in full later this year,” said Oceania Cycling Confederation President and Union Cycliste Internationale Management Committee Member Tracey Gaudry.
