The German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, the State of Baden-Württemberg and the City of Heidelberg will jointly host the International Conference on Climate Action – ICCA2019 – in Heidelberg on May 22 and 23 2019. The conference will bring together leaders and decision makers from states, regions and cities as well as stakeholders and experts from around the world.

Cities alone consume around three quarters of global primary energy and account for over 70 % of energy-related greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. At the same time, they are also hubs of economic development and innovation.

In the run-up to the UN Secretary General’s Climate Summit, the ICCA2019 will focus on scaling up and speeding up coordinated and integrated climate action across all levels and sectors of government, identifying the levers that matter in key sectors and the solutions that make a difference.
