Tales of two cities: partnerships for urban sustainability

This publication profiles 12 examples of local government achievements towards sustainability and the specific partnerships with a variety of actors that have contributed to that success. No matter where they are located, partners are inevitably confronted with the challenges of securing sufficient time, human and financial resources, building and retaining capacity, reconciling language or cultural differences, building trust, and overcoming the geographic divide. The 12 cases contained in this publication show that despite the challenges, partnering is indeed a rewarding endeavor.
