What is the Compact of Mayors?

The Compact of Mayors is a joint initiative of the three leading global networks of local governments, in particular,  ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI), C40 Climate Leadership Group (C40), United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG), supported with their global partners.

The Compact of Mayors is an agreement by city networks – and then by their members – to undertake a transparent and supportive approach to reduce city-level emissions, to reduce vulnerability and to enhance resilience to climate change, in a consistent and complimentary manner to national level climate protection efforts.
