Through the signature of a partnership agreement, Metropolis and C40 have agreed to cooperate in areas such as the maximization of joint members, collaboration on governance issues, particularly on metropolitan governance, work with non-joint members on climate change and Metropolis participation in C40 events.
C40 and Metropolis currently have about 40 members in common, some of them having expressed the wish to maximize network membership and create synergies to avoid duplication of engagement. One of the outcomes of this partnership agreement is the development an annual joint action plan with specific activities for these common members.
The partnership agreement was signed last May 21st in Tokyo, by Octavi de la Varga Metropolis Secretary General, and David Miller, C40's director for North America, seizing the occasion of the second Urban 20 Summit (U20). Mr Michael Müller, President of Metropolis and Governing Mayor of Berlin (which is also a C40 member), and Emila Saíz, UCLG Secretary General, have witnessed the act.
