About Local Governments and Municipal Authorities (LGMA) Constituency:

Local Governments and Municipal Authorities (LGMA) Constituency gathers networks of local and subnational governments that are accredited to the UNFCCC as observers.

Together with business (BINGOs) and environmental NGOs (ENGOs), it was one of the first observer groups following the UNFCCC process since 1995.

ICLEI is the focal point of LGMA since 1995.

Within this scope, it also facilitates a broader global coalition (does not require UNFCCC accreditation) of networks of local and subnational governments under the Local Government Climate Roadmap, which started in 2007 at COP13 in Bali advocating for recognition, engagement, and empowerment of local governments in the global climate regime. The LGMA and the Roadmap are the main advocacy channels for inputs of local and subnational governments into UNFCCC negotiations.
