Global Covenant of Mayors

Six months after the successful Paris Climate Agreement, two of the world’s primary city-led climate change and energy initiatives, the EU Covenant of Mayors and the Compact of Mayors, announced the formation of a new, first-of-its-kind global initiative of cities and local governments leading in the fight against climate change. This single initiative will create the largest global coalition of cities committed to climate leadership, building on the commitments of more than 7,100 cities from 119 countries and six continents, representing more than 600 million inhabitants, over 8% of the world’s population.

The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy is an international coalition of local and regional authorities with a shared long-term vision of promoting and supporting voluntary action to combat climate change and move to a low-carbon society, based on the following core principles:

  • Local Governments are Key Contributors: The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy works to organize and mobilize local, regional and state governments to be active contributors to a global climate solution.
  • City Networks as Critical Partners: Local and global city networks are core partners, serving as the primary support for participating cities or regions.
  • A Robust Solution Agenda: Focusing on those sectors where cities have the greatest impact, the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy supports ambitious, locally relevant solutions, captured through strategic action plans that are registered, implemented and monitored and publicly available.
  • Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Fostering Local Climate Resilience: The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy emphasizes the importance of climate mitigation and adaptation, as well as universal access to energy.

 

 

 

The Global Covenant of Mayors will bring together, under one single umbrella, “Regional Covenants,” that - subject to the overriding objectives mentioned above - shall be organized at the regional level according to organizational principles and methods that best suit each given region. Cities and local governments may participate in the Global Covenant of Mayors either through a “Regional Covenant” or by directly engaging with the Global Covenant of Mayors Secretariat.
