2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference
Digital and in-person
With continuous support from the Scottish Government and in collaboration with the COP27 Presidency, the Egyptian Ministry of Housing, the Marrakech Partnership and LGMA Partners, the Multilevel Action Pavilion will provide a home in the Blue Zone for local and regional governments throughout the two weeks of COP27 through 70+ sessions organized by 25+ partners.
About the LGMA
Since the Earth Summit in 1992, when nine stakeholder groups—including local authorities—were designated as essential partners in implementing the global sustainability agenda, the Local Governments and Municipal Authorities (LGMA) Constituency has represented networks of local and regional governments under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). We have served as the voice of cities and regions since the first Conference of Parties (COP) in 1995 and continue to achieve advocacy success for multilevel action in the climate, nature, and desertification processes.
Influencing UNFCCC Negotiations
Since the first climate COP in 1995, the LGMA has been the official channel of cities and regions to the UNFCCC, growing to more than 45 accredited networks of local and regional governments. We coordinate inputs to the global climate negotiations all year, influencing and informing outcomes toward meeting the Paris Agreement via regular communications and monthly webinars with our thematic and regional working groups. On the ground at each COP, the Multilevel Action Pavilion serves as the home for the LGMA inside the Blue Zone (the official negotiations space) and is developed in close collaboration with the COP host city, region, and country.
