Transnational City Resilience Networks as facilitators of Policy Learning and Implementation?

Increasingly regarded as climate governors cities are joining together in transnational city resilience networks which provide platforms for city-to-city learning. However, it is still unclear how useful these learning processes are in driving practices on the ground. In this presentation we present the results of a global survey addressing key networks and interviews to city representatives, exploring the mechanisms of the learning opportunities leveraged from city networks. While results reveal that under certain conditions these learning exchanges can lead to implementation, we raise the question around how pioneering cities could effectively transfer their examples to most of the smaller cities looking for policy support.
