ICLEI: Local Governments for Sustainability

ICLEI: Local Governments for Sustainability
(1990; Bonn, Germany; 303 staff; iclei.org)

The global network of local and regional governments works “through peer exchange, partnerships and capacity building to create systemic change for urban sustainability”. It shapes “policy and sparks action to transform urban environments worldwide”; building “connections across levels of government, sectors and stakeholder groups, sparking city-to-city, city-to-region, local-to-global and local-to-national connections. By linking subnational, national and global actors, policies, commitments and initiatives, ICLEI strengthens action at all levels, in support of sustainable urban development.



Leadership: Frank Cownie (President) and Cathy Oke (First Vice President)
