Full agenda and highlights of events convened by members of Local Governments and Municipal Authorities (LGMA) Constituency at the UNFCCC where ICLEI acts as its focal point on behalf of Global Task Force of Local and Regional Governments.
The second Climate Summit for Local and Regional Leaders was held on 14 November 2016 in parallel to COP22, the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Marrakech, Morocco. The summit convened 1,100 participants from 114 countries, representing over 780 local and subnational governments, continuing the momentum build last year at the successful Climate Summit for Local Leaders in Paris City Hall.
The summit culminated with the release of the Marrakech Roadmap for Action, which was presented to Champions of the Global Climate Action Agenda, Ms Hakima El Haité and Ms Laurence Tubiana. Their role as part of the Global Climate Action Agenda is to connect nations and the voluntary actions of non-Party actors, including local and subnational governments.
