ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability is a global network working with more than 2,500 local and regional governments committed to sustainable urban development. Active in 125+ countries, ICLEI influences sustainability policy and drives local action for low emission, nature-based, equitable, resilient and circular development. ICLEI's Members and team of experts work together through peer exchange, partnerships and capacity building to create systemic change for urban sustainability. The European Secretariat of ICLEI (ICLEI Europe) represents local and regional governments and cooperates with European networks, the European Commission, the Committee of the Regions and others to shape the debate on urban sustainability policies and legislation. ICLEI Europe has a wide range of expertise in sustainable urban governance, public procurement, circular economy and waste, cultural heritage, climate change mitigation and adaptation, nature-based solutions, urban water management, smart cities, mobility, infrastructure, food, urban resilience, energy transition, social justice and social innovation. ICLEI Europe connects local and regional governments with solution providers, through collaboration on European and national-scale projects, technical consultation, multidisciplinary training, events and information and communication services, to facilitate the implementation and replication of sustainable solutions.

Role in the project

ICLEI will lead on upscaling and replicating CLIMATEFIT results, including creating a European Network of LRTs and connecting project results via the development of a One-Stop Shop, ensuring their sustainability. ICLEI will also support communication and dissemination efforts, especially in terms of seeking out and developing synergies with the Adaptation Mission governance, existing projects, and platforms.
