Fact sheet






The Sustainable Cities and Eco-energy Towns initiative fosters collaboration and knowledge transfer to strengthen the current links and activities in the participating countries and expedite the transition to cleaner and sustainable cities, towns, and rural areas. Through its activities, the initiative aims to:

  • Develop benchmarking and an international database that will include best practices related to the issue of sustainable development of cities from all over the world; conduct a joint study with other international organizations.
  • Engage with key stakeholders through workshops and international meetings (for example, the ‘Second International meeting of Mayors dedicated to energy efficiency and sustainable development of the cities’ and ‘the 1st Eco-energy Town Workshop,’ and so on).
  • Increase awareness of sustainable cities development and the Eco-Energy Town model among other CEM member and non-member countries.
