“Raising Global Level of Ambition Through Local Climate Action”



The World Mayors Summit on Climate Change in Nantes has been successfully concluded in Nantes, France on 28 September 2013. The Nantes Declaration of Mayors and Subnational Leaders on Climate Change was adopted with the support of over 50 mayors from 30 countries, and more than 20 regional and global networks of local and subnational governments.

Adoption of the Declaration marks the start of a new phase for the Local Government Climate Roadmap, an advocacy process aimed at recognizing, engaging and empowering local governments within the global climate regime.
