ICLEI maintains its mission to address climate change through local initiatives, but we also acknowledge the essential need to motivate and accelerate our international peers to take similar aggressive action. Through collaboration and inspiration, we are helping communities worldwide become more sustainable and resilient.
Our Programs, Resources, & Tools
ICLEI is developing and executing programs designed to bridge local, national, and international collaboration, and has targeted key international regions, such as urban Chinese cities, that have the greatest opportunity for emission reduction through sharing of innovations in energy and infrastructure, and have the greatest need to act due to growing urban spaces and energy needs of its citizens.
California-China Urban Climate Collaborative is a dynamic, new long-term exchange between cities in California and China seeking to reduce carbon and air pollution and advance the clean energy economy
ICLEI helps local governments exchange experiences of and expertise in local climate actions through our Member network, partner network, and through recent initiatives such as the Solutions Gateway where local governments can find possible low-emissions solutions for their city.
The Compact of Mayors is the world’s largest coalition of city leaders addressing climate change by pledging to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, tracking their progress and preparing for the impacts of climate change.
