ICLEI Members is a diverse group of local governments, prefectures, municipalities and counties who share the common commitment in sustainable urban development - to make communities greener, more efficient, healthier and more resilient to climate change and its impacts.
ICLEI Members in East Asia spans over 70 cities, towns and counties across the regions, including China, Chinese Taipei, Japan and Korea.
ICLEI Members save money, reduce energy use and waste, improve infrastructure and lower greenhouse gas emissions to adapt and mitigate climate change.
They measure energy consumption and emissions, assess sustainability performance and climate resilience, set achievable goals, develop and implement local action plans, advocate and share good practices worldwide.
ICLEI is a gateway to global sustainability solutions. By participating in our programs, projects and campaigns, Memebrs gain access to technical tools, expert guidance and assistance, trainings, peer networks, case studies and guide books, funding updates and policy analyses, networks to share knowledge, international recognition, as well as opportunities to affect national and international policy.
"This is what really sets the tone at ICLEI - we can all teach other something and we can all learn from each other"
Amos Masondo, Former Executive Mayor of Johannesburg, South Africa
