dc.description.abstractIs there a role for cities in the Global Environmental Governance (GEG) system and, if so, what exactly should that role be? Konrad Otto-Zimmermann, the Director of ICLEI, argues that cities and local governments have played a leading role in developing programs to reduce greenhouse gases, and have much to offer in national and global efforts to address climate change and other major environmental issues. A new and improved GEG framework should include direct connections to and involvement by local and subnational governments as well as business, giving these important stakeholders input into important policies and decisions that ultimately affect them.en_US
