about ACP

In a rapidly urbanizing world, local governments and their communities play a pivotal role in tackling climate change and advancing sustainability in cities. The Ambitious City Promises project, led by ICLEI is designed to advance this work by capacitating local governments, engaging citizens and driving climate action through Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS).

Where the Promise of Seoul is spreading

Hanoi almost tripled its size when it expanded to its neighboring provinces and districts. A bustling center of business, culture and technology, the city plans to establish its baseline greenhouse gas emissions inventory and formulate an action plan to reduce emissions. Soc Son primarily aims to harmonize economic development with environment protection programs, while Son Tay, known as a historic town, is battling pollution and infrastructure overload, both of which could be addressed through more inclusive and integrated city planning.

About Ambitious City Promises

The Promise of Seoul, a comprehensive climate strategy adopted by the Seoul Metropolitan Government at the ICLEI World Congress in 2015, is at the heart of Ambitious City Promises. It provides a model of effective climate action at the community lev,el, showing that cities can be both engines of growth and global leaders on climate action by establishing inclusive low emission urban economies.

Through Ambitious City Promises, local governments in Southeast Asia adapt this model of inclusive, ambitious climate action, mainstreaming low emission development strategies and creating new climate leaders. By spreading the vision behind the Promise of Seoul, Ambitious City Promises show how collective action taken in cities, with leadership from local governments, can contribute to achieving and ratcheting up national and global climate goals.

Aims

Through Ambitious City Promises ICLEI aims to:

  • Develop and deploy bottom-up models of climate action planning:Ambitious City Promises demonstrates the impact of bottom-up climate action by engaging city residents and integrating stakeholder pledges into the City Promises. By consolidating and integrating community pledges into local action plans, cities can quantify community contributions and make the case for greater ambition at all levels of government. In this way, Ambitious City Promises creates new climate leaders at the municipal and community level.

  • Establish lasting mechanisms for knowledge sharing:Ambitious City Promises strengthens climate action by spreading good practices through city-to-city exchange and support. Inspired by the Promise of Seoul, this project, with the support of the Seoul Metropolitan Government, guides participating cities in establishing mechanisms that allow for peer learning while supporting and aligning with national climate action plans and policies.

Activites

Through Ambitious City Promises local governments across Southeast Asia:

  • Participate in in-country consultations to facilitate capacity building, policy advice and technology transfer support provided by ICLEI, the Seoul Metropolitan Government and the project advisory group.
  • Develop new or improved comprehensive greenhouse gas emissions inventories.
