The ICLEI Montréal Commitment and Strategic Vision 2018-2024
Our vision for sustainable urban developmentDownload
In our urban era, cities are a driving force for global sustainable development
At the ICLEI World Congress 2018 in Montréal, local and regional leaders across the ICLEI network released the ICLEI Montréal Commitment and Strategic Vision. This vision oriented our path towards urban transformation and set a course for delivering on the global sustainable development agenda.
The ICLEI Montréal Commitment defined low emission, nature-based, circular, resilient and equitable development as five interconnected pathways towards sustainability. ICLEI continues to support these pathways through policy approaches related to governance, innovation and finance.
By committing to this vision, local and regional governments are leading the way towards a fossil fuel free era, stimulating the green economy through sustainable public procurement, developing urban low emission, climate-resilient, mobility-friendly development strategies – and more.READ
