ICLEI Members share a commitment to sustainable local urban development. With their diverse backgrounds, cities and local governments have proven time and again that they inspire and empower sustainability efforts. We are proud to work with our Members through our extensive networks, global projects and advocacy at all levels.
Over the years, ICLEI has forged winning partnerships with governments and a multitude of organizations at international, regional and national levels, including financing institutions, the private sector, universities and expert institutions, United Nations agencies and international non-government organizations.
Cities are leading global change. Over the past two decades, ICLEI has been working with leading actors from around 1,000 local governments in over 80 countries on the urban sustainability stage. Our membership is open to all local spheres of government, as well as international, regional, national and sub-national associations of municipal governments and authorities.
