The case study findings demonstrate that transnational urban South-North cooperation on low carbon transitions is possible and is emerging in various institutional forms. In addition to more traditional twinning arrangements, cities also connect in ad hoc and project-oriented partnerships, which can be driven and moderated by external moderators such as the GIZ or ICLEI. The data however points to key challenges that remain in transnational urban partnerships.
