International city networks directory


Each year since 2018 a one-day event entitled ‘In Focus: SDG 11’ is dedicated to sustainable cities and communities. The event in 2021 was coorganized by UNECE, UN-Habitat and the Geneva Cities Hub (GCH). International city networks were encouraged to participate in the event, to foster dialogue and cooperation with Geneva-based UN agencies and other international organizations, as well as with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and academia.

This directory gathers information on international and regional city networks and their key projects. The information contained in each profile was provided by the organization concerned and was not modified either by the United Nations or GCH. The directory is not by any means exhaustive. It is meant to be an evolving tool that facilitates access to networks that represent cities and local authorities and urban partnerships and initiatives, and enhances their visibility in International Geneva’s ecosystem.
