ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability is a global network working with more than 2500 local and regional governments committed to sustainable urban development. Active in 125+ countries, we influence sustainability policy and drive local action for low emission, nature-based, equitable, resilient and circular development.
ICLEI Member since 2000, the Federal City of Bonn is the seat of the ICLEI World Secretariat, and Lord Mayor Katja Dörner currently serves on the ICLEI Global Executive Committee as Co-Chair of the Climate and Low Emissions Portfolio. The City is constantly working on improving its sustainable performance by adopting local action programs, successfully establishing forms of cooperation with cities all over the world, and by launching activities that advance sustainable development.
The City of Bonn has recently presented its second Voluntary Local Review (VLR) on the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). For more information, visit https://international.bonn.de/vlr
The Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is responsible for formulating the principles and strategies of German development policy, which form the basis of cooperation with partner countries and international organisations. Sustainable urban development is recognized as a key element for achieving international development and climate goals and therefore constitutes a significant field of German development policy. BMZ is hence a very committed actor in the Habitat III process and actively contributes to shape the international debate on urbanization.
