Event Details

The Global Covenant of Mayors is the largest alliance of cities and local governments voluntarily committed to accelerate, ambitious, measurable climate and energy initiatives to secure a low-emission and climate-resilient future. Through commitment and leadership and by implementing day after day impactful climate actions in their communities, GCoM cities and local governments are “walking the talk” to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.
The session will showcase successful examples of how cities have turned their ambition into action and have approached the climate challenge as an opportunity for green recovery. It will present and take stock of the impact that the 11,000 signatories of the GCoM have made locally in their community and globally in tackling climate change. This session will also touch upon how National and local governments can identify the most effective way for integration of city-level Climate Action Plans within the NDC multilevel implementation process, involving financial institutions for a faster unlocking of climate action financing, and launch a new GCoM country-tailored initiative to support multilevel climate action.
