Cities in talks with National Governments for post-2012 Climate Agreement

May 12, 2009

Since April 2009, ICLEI has been advocating to the Parties at UN Climate Talks for an official UN recognition of successful local climate action worldwide. Local and regional governments are requesting that their national governments look to local experiences when discussing a new climate agreement.

An increase in systematic capacity building and resources on the local level will dramatically help local actions and measures that can build a stronger climate agreement. For more information on the advocacy work undertaken in Poznan (Poland) and Bonn (Germany), please visit www.iclei.org/climate-roadmap.
