Municipal partnership networks are a form of cooperation where some selected municipalities receive increased support from ICLD to conduct their results-oriented international projects. The municipalities start at the same time with their preparations and are connected in a network where they work in parallel over four years with their projects together with each partner municipality. By starting their project at the same time and working with similar projects, the municipalities have the opportunity for a broader exchange of experiences with each other, as well as greater support from ICLD to achieve good results.

Each individual partnership continues to have the opportunity to yearly exchanges whilst also participating in common activities and trainings with the other partnerships in the network. There will also be the possibility for south-south knowledge exchange visits and to actively involve local civil society and universities in the partnerships.

Currently ICLD supports networks on following themes:
