The World Mayors Council - A global convener

Discussing common challenges and their solutions with peers is of prime importance for local leaders. Being on the frontline of the fight against climate change requires access to the best sustainability practices.

Thanks to its close relationship with ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability, the World Mayors Council on Climate Change has the capacity to draw together leaders from cities around the world.

Every year the World Mayors Council convenes the Mayors Adaptation Forum as the only place where local decision-makers can directly exchange insight and set a global agenda for local adaptation.

In 2010, the World Mayors Council also co-organized the World Mayors Summit on Climate.
