  • ICLEIs Strategic Plan clearly reflects ICLEIs recognition that the local authorities and cities of the developed world as ecological debtors have a responsibility to act immediately in addressing their accountability towards the cities and local authorities from the Global South, i.e. ecological creditors.
  • The ICLEI World Secretariat actively pursues partnerships and opportunities to assist ICLEI regions from the Global South to grow their ICLEI membership and activities.
  • The ICLEI World Secretariat actively pursues opportunities for annual regional meetings of its Global South members, especially for the regions of Africa, South East Asia, South Asia, and LACS (including Mexico).
  • .


  • The ICLEI Executive Committee appoints a Task Force, lead by the Vice President and the Deputy Secretary General of ICLEI, and including the regional and national heads of the Global South offices of ICLEI, to investigate further the specific needs of its Global South members and to develop a Programme and Plan of Action for the Global South to be mainstreamed in the ICLEI Strategic Plan. The Task Force should present the Programme and Plan of Action to the Executive Committee at its next meeting for approval and immediate implementation.
  • The Programme and Plan of Action for the Global South should be based on the three pillars of sustainable development, namely environmental, social and economic sustainability and include the following thematic areas:
    • .


    • energy security and equitable access to energy
    • climate change adaptation and resilience at the local level, including disaster risk management
    • food security
    • integrated water resource management and sanitation
    • sustainable urban planning and equitable land use
    • capacity building, skills development and education
    • promotion of the Green Economy, job creation and poverty alleviation
    • biodiversity and the sustainable supply of ecosystem services.
  • The Task Force annually reports back to the ICLEI Executive Committee (as well as to the ICLEI Council at its next World Congress) on implementation of the Programme and Plan of Action for the Global South

29. YoungMunicipal Leaders 30.

  • Therefore we urge ICLEI to:
  • Create a Young Municipal Leaders Working Group, with full support of the
  • Secretariat, to develop and implement an action plan in that may include, and is not limited to:
  • Developing a network of young leaders at the regional and global levels;
  • Developing a program for exchange opportunities, where young leaders could learn from other municipalities and link with other young leaders;
  • Make recommendations for increasing the voice of young leaders within ICLEI;
  • Developing a program for encouraging international involvement of Young Leaders at major sustainability events;
  • Consultation of Young Leaders on the development of ICLEI strategy and major projects.
  • Improving access to, and the presentation of ICLEI information about innovative projects and research, for the benefit of the broadest possible audience of young leaders.
  • Edmonton is the proud host of the 2009 ICLEI World Congress - a conference on advancing local environment initiatives.
