With the adoption and entry into force of the Paris Agreement and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), eyes are turning to the efforts of sustainable cities. Taking this as an opportunity, the Kitakyushu Urban Centre, IGES, investigated and analysed the factors that enabled Kitakyushu to conduct continuous cooperation activities in diverse areas based on case studies of cooperation with fi ve cities in Asia (Dalian, Phnom Penh, Surabaya, Hai Phong, and Mandalay) and a focus on the intercity cooperation schemes that Kitakyushu has been involved in for almost 40 years. The results of these studies and analyses have been compiled to produce this report.
