Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan

Hon. Stephany Uy-Tan
Mayor, Catbalogan, Philippines
Vice President and ICLEI Spokesperson to the UN

Mayor Uy-Tan became the first woman Mayor of Catblogan City in the Philippines in 2013. Prior to becoming the local chief executive, she served as a City Councilor and was recognized for having authored landmark legislation concerning health, tourism, environmental protection, and nutrition. As Mayor, Hon. Uy-Tan focused on promoting a participatory form of governance to deal with issues of environment and sanitation, ecotourism, education, and economic development. Since Catbalogan is continuously challenged by natural disasters, the city, through the Mayors’ leadership realized the need to uphold resiliency and thus came up with the idea of Sky City. Sky City is a development project which aims to decongest the city’s traffic and provide a flood-free, typhoon-resilient space for commercial and residential areas in the city. It is envisioned to house government offices, mall zones, health and wellness centers, training hubs and more. The Mayor has presented the Sky City at the Cities and Region Pavilion during COP21.

She has represented ICLEI in various international events including the Climate Summit of Local and Regional Leaders in Bonn in November 2017. She also participated at the UN Secretary General’s High-Level Meeting on Climate in September 2017.

Mayor-Uy Tan serves as ICLEI’s Co-Chair and Spokesperson to the United Nations.

Bogor City, Indonesia

Southeast Asia Representative to the ICLEI Global Executive Committee
Chair, Low Carbon Portfolio

Hon. Bima Arya Sugiarto became the Mayor of Bogor City in Indonesia in April 2014. His goal is to develop Bogor as a Smart City, a Heritage City, and a Green City. Development plans, strategies, and programs implemented in Bogor are all integrated to promote the convergence of these three points. In the past years, Bogor has successfully increased its green spaces across the city, building parks, heritage icons, public spaces, and others. These notable structures include the Sempur Park, Heulang Park, Corat-Coret Park, and the Ekspresi Park.

Ecomobility is also one of Bogor’s priorities. The city is keen in developing urban transport systems that can support mass transportations and infrastructures and projects that encourage walking and biking. The local government of Bogor has built pedestrian lanes, bicycle lanes, and implemented a one-way system along the Bogor Botanical Garden, where traffic is usually heavy, especially during the rush hours.

Under his leadership, Bogor City was awarded the Smart City rating by the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs. The city also received the Nata Mukti Award given by the International Council for Small Business due to its considerable efforts in improving marketing and trade throughout the city.

Hon. Bima represents the Southeast Asia region to the Global Executive Committee and he also chairs the Low Carbon Portfolio.
