All India Institute of Local Self-Government (AIILSG)

AIILSG is a premier institute working towards strengthening and reinforcing Urban Local Governance. For nearly nine decades it has contributed to the principles and practice of urban governance, education, research and capacity building. In all that AIILSG has done, it has taken care to work with a full range of stakeholders – grassroots organizations, NGOs, ULBs, state and national governments, international organizations, organizations of the UN, research organizations and universities. Among international agencies, it has been working closely with World Bank, UNICEF, UNDP, UN-HABITAT, USAID, UNESCO, DFID, GIZ, CITYNET and others in carrying out various developmental programmes for enhanced urban development and management.

United Cities and Local Governments Asia-Pacific (UCLG ASPAC)

The regional section of UCLG is based in Jakarta, Indonesia. The organisation is the key knowledge management hub on local government issues in the region. UCLG is a worldwide association of local government organisations that dates back to 1913. UCLG is the only local government organization recognised by the United Nations, and nominates 10 out of 20 members of UNACLA, the first advisory body of local authorities affiliated with the UN. The Asia and Pacific region is the biggest of the eight sections in UCLG with linkages to more than 7.000 local governments.

Global Covenant of Mayors

The Global Covenant of Mayors – South Asia is the regional chapter of the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy, an international alliance of cities and local governments with a shared long-term vision of promoting and supporting voluntary action to combat climate change and move to a low emission, resilient society. Across the world, cities have made voluntary commitments to take significant action on climate change that are in line with, and in many cases more ambitious than, their respective national government baselines. Since its June 2016 merger (the EU Covenant of Mayors + the UN Compact of Mayors), the Global Covenant of Mayors has worked to consolidate these commitments into one cohesive alliance. As of October 2017, more than 7400 cities and towns across the world have made a commitment to the Global Covenant, representing almost 700 Ml total population, and committing for 1,29 GtCO2e tons avoided by 2030.
