Local Governments in emerging economies: Support and mobilisation towards a global and comprehensive post-2012 climate change agreement

The project allowed ICLEI and UCLG and their regional offices to advance the global climate advocacy work, with emerging economy countries at the core. Thus, for the first time in the history of LG involvement in the UNFCCC process, the representatives of developing countries are driving the interaction with national governments, and not just those from developed countries. As a result, LGs have strengthened their role and relevance for issues far beyond climate change, particularly in emerging economy countries.
