Welcome to Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy

GCoM Southeast Asia

The Global Covenant of Mayors Southeast Asia (GCoM SEA) helps coordinate and support engagement with participating cities in Southeast Asia. It encourages climate action at the local level and helps build a community of committed signatories around it.

Whatever the size or location of their jurisdiction, the mayors and local leaders in this alliance stand ready to take concrete measures with long-term impact to tackle the interconnected challenges of climate change mitigation, adaptation, and access to sustainable energy.

GCoM Program Challenges

Adaptation to climate change

Adopting an integrated approach to climate change mitigation and adaptation ensures consistency of actions, creates synergies and co-benefits, increases cost-efficiency, and helps avoid maladaptation. For more information on how to create a truly integrated approach and address the inter-relationships between adaptation and mitigation, check out this short article and this explanation on Climate-ADAPT.

Climate Change Mitigation

The GCoM signatory cities and local governments act to voluntarily meet targets for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions (or low emission development targets) for their whole community, identify climate risks and vulnerabilities, and implement mitigation and adaptation measures.

In addition, the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy also aims to address increased access to sustainable energy.

Access to clean Energy

Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Fostering Local Climate Resilience: The Global Covenant of Mayors emphasizes the importance of climate change mitigation (also referred to as low emission development for the Global South) and adaptation to a changing climate, as well as increased access to sustainable energy.

Cities and local governments committing to the GCoM as of 1 January 2017 will need to establish a target covering the territory of the local authority for GHG emissions reductions, make a commitment to tackle climate change adaptation and resilience, and increased access to clean and affordable energy.

Cities and local governments should strive to set targets that are at least as ambitious, and preferably more ambitious, than their respective government’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) under the Paris Agreement. Further, they need to be in line with National Adaptation Plans (where these exist), and be consistent with the principles around energy access and urban sustainability embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
