Based on the IMPACT project's recent findings, ICLEI Africa presents a number of recommendations and practical examples for successful city collaboration.


Cities are complex systems. Multi-level governance and collaboration across sectors is crucial to enable the efficient management and distribution of resources and services. Only by understanding and leveraging the potentials and challenges that exist within urban environments city leaders are able to create economic, social and ecologically sustainable cities that respond to the needs of their communities and that are resilient against external shocks. To guide this process ICLEI’s IMPACT project has summarised its findings to offer cities seven proven ways to ensure successful collaboration.
