Frontline Cities and Islands

Building resilience in coastal cities and islands

More

Frontline Cities and Islands

Frontline cities and islands is a movement of mayors and leaders of island economies at the front-line of climate change impacts. Mayors and resilience leaders will work together to champion local action in urban areas to deliver scalable, integrated solutions to rapidly build resilience on islands globally.

Frontline Cities and Islands is strongly endorsed by the COP23 Presidency of Fiji and the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States.

ICLEI and Global Island Partnership (GLISPA) will work with partners to promote sustainable island and urban development through sub-national and city leadership on a range of issues important to islands such as resilience, clean energy, healthy oceans and near-shore coastal fisheries management, resilient infrastructure, innovative finance and ecosystems services.

Aims

The project aims to create a network of coastal cities and municipalities, highlight urban island communities and island economies, and cultivate city-to-city and island-to-island learning and strategic partnerships, It also aims to make short and medium term funding more accessible for coastal cities, municipalities and settlements to promote innovative resilient solutions.
