Cities and regions

Join with us.

Being part of the UN Global Compact – Cities Programme enables cities and regions to be internationally connected and supported to develop partnerships (with private sector and civil society), projects and action on the local – state, city or municipal – level.

Working to advance the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda, we are guided by the ethical framework of the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact.

You begin with becoming a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact.

We encourage and invite you to become a Core Member of the UN Global Compact – Cities Programme – publish your achievements and progress, participate in events and webinars, be supported by a relationship manager.

You can go on to become a Leading level city or region – receiving 2 years of capacity development and facilitation support to implement multi-partner sustainable urban development projects.

Our Innovating cities and regions educate and inform other cities from their innovative practice and the lessons learnt from urban innovation and multi partner sustainable development projects.
