Recap: What happened at Climate Week NYC

During Climate Week NYC from 18-24 September, ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability demonstrated a commitment to coordinated, multi-stakeholder climate action.

Climate Week NYC brings together leaders from government, business and civil society who are leading the way on climate action. It offers a key platform through which these actors advance the debate and keep climate action at the top of the global agenda.

ICLEI mayors, including Ashok Sridharan, Mayor of Bonn, Germany and First Vice President of ICLEI, Miguel Mancera, Mayor of Mexico City, Mexico and ICLEI Vice President, Frank Cownie, Mayor of Des Moines, Iowa, USA and Member of the ICLEI Global Executive Committee and Stephany Uy Tan, Mayor of Catbalogan, Philippines, contributed to the United Nations Secretary General High Level Stakeholder Meeting on Climate Change and participated in a number of high level events and discussions.

Mayor Sridharan also attended the inaugural meeting of the Marrakech Partnership Climate Action Leadership Network, a group of high level leaders driving urgent climate action ahead of 2020, when national governments will submit a new round of nationally determined contributions (NDCs) - national climate action plans submitted under the Paris Climate Agreement. Mayor Sridharan is a founding member of this multi-stakeholder Leadership Network and will co-host the Climate Summit of Local and Regional Leaders, the premier gathering of local and regional governments at COP23, the 23rd United Nations Climate Change Conference in Bonn.

ICLEI also co-organized the Low Emissions Solutions Conference (LESC) on 20-21 September, alongside the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), to support innovation in low emissions development. The LESC brought together technical experts, scientists and engineers across sectors to enable collaborative problem solving, aiming to support nations in advancing their NDCs.
