Partnership of the city of Munich, Germany with the Asháninka people, Peru

Munich’s membership of Climate Alliance was, in 1997, the catalyst for a partnership with the Asháninka people; a community of around 70,000 in the central Peruvian rainforest.

Munich supports the Asháninka in their preservation of the rainforest as the “green lung” of the planet, and also as their own home.

50 Municipal partnerships by 2015

The '50 Municipal Climate Partnerships by 2015' project is being jointly implemented by the Service Agency Communities in One World and the North Rhine-Westphalian Working Party on Agenda 21 (LAG 21 NRW).

The project is supported by an executive committee decision of the German Association of Cities, as well as by the German Association of Towns and Municipalities and the German Association of Counties. It is designed to enable municipalities in Germany to join forces with regions and municipalities in developing and emerging countries, and develop joint programmes of action for climate change mitigation and adaptation.
