The international networks and unions we are members of are as follows:
1. Covenant of Mayors
Covenant of Mayors Europe-CoM, launched by the European Commission in 2008 to engage and support mayors to achieve the climate and energy goals of the European Union, brings together thousands of cities and regions that are voluntarily committed to implementing their climate and energy targets. Based on the strength of a multi-stakeholder movement, the signatory cities and regions voluntarily contribute to this initiative by realizing the targets set at the regional or national level within the framework of sustainability and preparing sustainable energy action plans that are subject to the surveillance process.
The signatories commit to adopting an integrated approach to climate change mitigation and adaptation. The CoM requires signatory local governments to reduce their CO2 emissions by at least 40% by 2030, during the first two years of signing the contract, to develop a Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan to increase resilience to climate change and to monitor and report periodically.
International Cities4Forests is a voluntary coalition of mayors supported by other city agencies around the world, such as public water utilities and sustainability offices. Only Antalya and Mersin from Turkey are among the founding members of Cities4Forests, which receives technical support from institutions specialized in forests, water, climate, finance, and politics and does not have any membership fees.
International Cities4Forests aims to combat climate change in cities, protect watersheds and biodiversity, and increase the level of well-being for citizens. It also aims to integrate forests into city development plans and programs, mobilize political, social, and economic support among city governments and citizens, reduce deforestation, restore forests (include more trees in cities) and manage forests more sustainably.
Cities4Forests divides forests into three distinct categories of importance to show how big a role forests play in the health and well-being of cities: inner forests (such as city trees and urban parks), nearby forests (such as green corridors and watersheds), and faraway forests (such as tropical and boreal forests).
RACE TO ZERO (C40 CITIES)
C40 is a network of megacities around the world dedicated to addressing climate change. C40 supports cities to collaborate effectively, share knowledge and take meaningful, measurable and sustainable action on climate change.
C40 International Cities Organization organized the "Cities Race to Zero" Program, which aims to reach the 1.5 °C target of the Paris Agreement and to accelerate the climate action of cities on climate and to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2050. This program is also supported by international organizations.
As Antalya Metropolitan Municipality, it is aimed to act with this vision by participating in this program and to create a more inclusive, solid and resilient world in order to ensure global cooperation and achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.
With this program, it is aimed to increase climate action by bringing together cities, studies and experiences, to accelerate emission reduction, and to increase people's quality of life and resilience to a large extent.
ONE PLANET CITY CHALLENGE (OPCC)
WWF has been organizing the One Planet City Challenge since 2011 to mobilize cities for a climate resilient future. Within the scope of this challenge, cities with ambitious goals and practices aimed at combating climate change are highlighted, and efforts are made to inspire cities around the world.
As Antalya Metropolitan Municipality, we took our place among the world cities for the fight against climate change and sustainability by participating in the One World Cities Competition (OPCC), which is held by WWF in more than 50 countries.
Reporting was made through the CDP-ICLEI Unified Reporting System in the competition, in which 53 countries and 255 cities participated worldwide.
Within the scope of OPCC, WWF's cooperation with Future Proofed has provided 50 cities, including our Municipality, with the opportunity to use the platform free of charge throughout 2022.
It has been reported that the Future Proofed digital platform will provide content and reporting tools for the creation, implementation and monitoring of climate plans for cities, with the help of artificial intelligence, the evaluation of emissions and costs, as well as the social benefits provided through climate action, and the support team will be directed. On the platform, cities will be guided and supported by a team. Future proofed Cities helps local governments achieve their goals.
