International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives ICLEI httpwwwicleiorg

ICLEI is an international environmental agency for local governments. ICLEI's mission is to build and serve a worldwide movement of local governments to achieve tangible improvements in global environmental and sustainable development conditions through cumulative local actions. More than 445 cities, towns, counties, and their associations from around the world are full members of the Council, with hundreds of additional local governments participating in specific ICLEI campaigns and projects.

ICLEI's Cities for Climate Protection Campaign (CCP), which began in 1993, is a global campaign to reduce the emissions that cause global warming and air pollution. By 1999, the campaign had engaged more than 350 local governments in this effort, who jointly accounted for approximately 7% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
