2019 Annual Report

As a global network, ICLEI embodies the diversity of the urban world, and the challenges and opportunities it presents us. Following the five interconnected pathways for sustainability, city and regional leaders across ICLEI are scaling up ambition and setting priorities to confront the impacts of rapid urbanization and demographic change, climate and environmental crisis, and a range of development challenges. 

Reviewing 2019, ICLEI East Asia has expanded partnerships with local governments and institutions, and continued to deliver projects and programs which are tailored to local needs. 

To support cities and regions around the world going beyond the linear takemake-dispose extractive industrial model, we led the launch of the Green Circular Cities Coalition in August, bringing together local governments from East Asia and Europe to consolidate their efforts in transitioning towards a lowcarbon and circular economy. We have also facilitated our Members to exchange policies and practices on waste management with their local government peers through study tours. 

Like previous years, we continued carrying out research projects, delivering capacity building activities, and facilitating cities’ engagement in international events related to clean air actions via East Asia Clean Air Cities, the inter-city collaboration network launched in 2016 for regular knowledge exchange. 

ICLEI East Asia also expanded our work with Ulaanbaatar in improving building efficiency. Together with our partners, we supported the city to kick off the Building Efficiency Accelerator Deep Dive Program in March, which provided an opportunity for the Municipality to publicly communicates its commitment to pursuing building efficiency actions, as well as to contribute towards the national goals to reduce energy demand and ultimately to reduce emissions. 

In the run-up to the 15th Conference of Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP15), we co-hosted two events in Beijing, providing platforms for local governments and relevant stakeholders in Asia and Europe to prepare for a consolidated local and subnational government voice on urban biodiversity and nature-based solutions for the post-2020 global biodiversity framework. 

Last, but not least, together with UNDRR ONEA-GETI, we coordinated a series of training on integrating climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction to cities in China. In 2020, we will continue to work with individual adaptation pilot cities in the country, to enhance their capacities in developing and implementing integrated climate adaptation plans. 

Cities of ICLEI are leading the way towards global sustainability. ICLEI East Asia is committed to accelerating these efforts with work that starts on the ground, across the region. With the five ICLEI pathways as a guidance, we will continue to support local and subnational governments in the region to design integrated solutions and scale up sustainable urban development.
