The Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)

The Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is responsible for formulating the principles and strategies of German development policy, which form the basis of cooperation with partner countries and international organisations. Sustainable urban development is recognised as a key element for achieving international development and climate goals and therefore constitutes a significant field of German development policy. BMZ is hence a very committed actor in the Habitat III process and actively contributes to shape the international debate on urbanization. -

German Partnership for Sustainable Mobility

The German Partnership for Sustainable Mobility (GPSM) is serving as a guide for sustainable mobility and green logistics solutions from Germany. As a platform for exchanging knowledge, expertise and experiences, GPSM supports the transformation towards sustainability in developing and emerging countries. It serves as a network of information from academia, businesses, civil society and associations -


The European Environment Agency (EEA) is an agency of the European Union. We are a major information source for those involved in developing, adopting, implementing and evaluating environmental policy, and also the general public. Currently, the EEA has 33 member countries. The EEA also coordinates the European environment information and observation network (Eionet) -


The Climate and Development Knowledge Network supports decision-makers in designing and delivering climate compatible development. We do this by combining research, advisory services and knowledge management in support of locally owned and managed policy processes. We work in partnership with decision-makers in the public, private and non-governmental sectors nationally, regionally and globally. We hold strongly to the ideals of human development and environmental sustainability.

EcoMobility World Festival 2017

Ecomobility World Festival 2017, Kaohsiung

Kaohsiung City will host the 3rd EcoMobility World Festival in October 2017. The Festival will enable the city to free valuable urban space from car traffic by opening the streets of the Hamasen neighbourhood in Kaohsiung exclusively for ecomobile modes of transport such as walking, cycling, public transport, shared vehicles and light electric vehicles.


The Transformative Actions Program (TAP) aims to catalyze and improve capital flows to cities and regions to accelerate low-carbon and climate-resilient urban development. -

carbonn® Climate Registry

The carbonn® Climate Registry (cCR) is the world´s leading reporting platform to enhance transparency, accountability and credibility of climate action of local and subnational governments. Over 610 cities and regions representing over 8% of the world’s total population are reporting greenhouse gas inventories, mitigation targets, adaptation commitments, climate hazards, and climate / energy actions. Reporting entities of the cCR have committed about 1 GtCO2e of emissions reductions by 2020. Many of them are starting to report on adaption and resilience, also through the Durban Adaptation Charter. The cCR serves as the reporting platform of 15 global initiatives, and is the central database of the Compact of Mayors.

Compact of Mayors

The Compact of Mayors is a global coalition of mayors and city officials committing to reduce local greenhouse gas emissions, enhance resilience to climate change and track their progress publicly. It is an agreement by city networks – and then by their members – to fight climate change in a consistent and complimentary manner to national efforts. The Compact of Mayors was launched in 2014 by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the three global city networks – ICLEI, C40 and UCLG – with the support of the UN Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change, Michael R. Bloomberg and UN-Habitat. It will officially become the Global Covenant of Mayors on Climate and Energy, after merging with the Covenant of Mayors in January 2017.


ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability is the leading global network of over 1,500 cities, towns and regions committed​ to building​ a sustainable future. By helping the ICLEI Network to become sustainable,​ low-carbon, ecomobile, resilient, biodiverse, resource-efficient, healthy and happy, with a green economy and smart infrastructure, we impact over 20% of the global urban population.
