In 2013 ICLEI, presumably in response to activists all over the United States exposing the global organization in their towns, removed its USA member list from its websites. Now these cities are again listed on the ICLEI-USA website. This may mean that cities are no longer being pressured by Americans to drop their affiliation with this international group that purports to be a collection of 'local governments for sustainability.' In fact, ICLEI is the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives and was created by the UN in 1990 to implement UN Agenda 21 worldwide.
Headquartered in Bonn, Germany, it is a lobbying and policy group that is intended to influence and change local governmental policies related to all aspects of human life. It designs and sells systems that monitor, report, and control water and energy usage. This information is then shared.
By concentrating power in cities this group circumvents requirements for ratification of international treaties and gives the illusion of local control. ICLEI is structured as a parallel government but has no transparency because it is a private non-profit.
In fact the cities then ally in regional conglomerates which break jurisdictional boundaries and will destroy local control. These regional boards are unelected and not answerable to the citizenry.
Ultimately this facilitates global governance by invalidating individual cities, counties, states, and nations with agreements and interwoven systems to which they are bound by contract: public private partnerships.
