B4 The case for multilevel governance for successful NDC implementation

This session is foreseen to provide added-value to the Cities and Regions Talanoa Dialogues initiative launched as part of the official UNFCCC mandated process called the Talanoa Dialogue. ICLEI – focal point of the Local Governments and Municipal Authorities (LGMA) Constituency to the UNFCCC and on behalf of the Global Task Force of Local and Regional Governments – and partners have taken an initiative called Cities and Regions Talanoa Dialogues in order to deliver and advance NDCs through effective multilevel governance further. The initiative shares the vision by the New Urban Agenda (UN-Habitat III, 2017) adopted in 2016, building upon the Bonn-Fiji Commitment of Local and Regional Leaders adopted at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 23) in November 2017, and the Call for Vertical Integration of Local Authorities in national climate investment plans issued by the Global Covenant of Mayors at the One Planet Summit last December.
