Together, we address the local impacts of unprecedented global change, from climate change to urbanization, aiming for urban development to have the least possible impact on global systems and to build communities that are people-centered and equitable. By helping the ICLEI Network to adopt urban pathways on low carbon, resilient, nature-based, people-centered, and circular development, ICLEI impacts over 25% of the global urban population. 

The ICLEI Southeast Asia Secretariat (ICLEI SEAS) serves members in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and the Philippines. The secretariat has gained recognition from its experience in empowering local governments in the region by designing, promoting, and drawing external support to implement programs on urban resilience, low emission development, integrated resource management, and other sustainability themes. ICLEI SEAS continuously inspires and invites local governments from provinces, cities, municipalities, and urban regions to forge partnerships for sustainability concerns specifically in terms of addressing climate change vis-à-vis urbanization; and encourage them to make this an important consideration in local development planning.
