|Covenant Coordinators & Supporters||Inspiring Achievements|
Covenant Coordinators show how they help cities deliverRegions, provinces, national energy agencies and other Covenant of Mayors Coordinators having joined the initiative for over a year have reported on the activities performed to assist municipalities in meeting the EU energy and climate objectives. The results of this reporting exercise have been published [here->http://www.covenantofmayors.eu/IMG/pdf/Monitoring_report_CTCs.pdf] on the Covenant library.
Covenant Coordinators provide strategic guidance to Covenant signatory cities, especially when these lack the financial and technical support to effectively develop and implement their Sustainable Energy Action Plans. Covenant Coordinators fully match their names, as they indeed play a genuine coordination role at large territorial scales, informing cities about the initiative and then assisting them throughout all phases of the Covenant process.
Thanks to those Coordinators, direct interaction is thus ensured with thousands of signatory cities. Signatories’ access to funding sources is also facilitated by these structures, which often act as structural funds managing authorities and can decide to allocate EU funding to Covenant-related activities.
Likewise, Coordinators are the relevant interface to relay Covenant Signatories’ funding and legislative priorities to the European Institutions, influencing policy development from the bottom-up.
