The recently formed International Council for Local Environment Initiatives (ICLEI) has decided to set up its headquarters in Toronto. Formed under the joint sponsorship of the United Nations Environment Programme, the International Union of Local Authorities, and the Centre for Innovative Diplomacy, ICLEI will be the first environmental agency to bring together city governments on a worldwide basis. ICLEI will act as an international network and forum for cooperation on environmental issues for cities around the world, and will provide a municipal voice in the United Nations. The ICLEI, which will have some two dozen permanent staff, will host international conferences and regular meetings of its 30-member international council.
