C40 is a network of nearly 100 mayors of the world’s leading cities, who are working to deliver the urgent action needed right now to confront the climate crisis, and create a future where everyone, everywhere can thrive. Mayors of C40 cities are committed to using a science-based and people-focused approach to help the world limit global heating to 1.5°C and build healthy, equitable and resilient communities. Through a Global Green New Deal, mayors are working alongside a broad coalition of representatives from labour, business, the youth climate movement and civil society to go further and faster than ever before.
C40’s team of 250+ staff is headquartered in New York, with offices in London, Joburg, Singapore, Delhi, Rio de Janeiro, Copenhagen, Beijing and Paris, and individual staff based across 25+ different locations, with the Office of the Chair based in Los Angeles.
The strategic direction of the organisation is determined by an elected Steering Committee of C40 mayors which is chaired by the Mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti. Three-term Mayor of New York City Michael R. Bloomberg serves as President of the C40 Board of Directors, which is responsible for operational oversight. A nine-person management team, led by Executive Director, Mark Watts, leads the day-to-day management of C40. C40’s three core strategic funders are Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) and Realdania.

Core to C40’s value and effectiveness is an ability to be responsive to the needs of all C40 cities and focus services and support on the areas of greatest opportunity for city action and climate impact – both at the individual city level and across our regional and global networks. Our regional management structure better enables C40 to leverage relationships between peer cities and technical and financial partners regionally and globally and to be more responsive to local needs and conditions.
To manage these efforts, C40 Regional Directors are positioned in seven regions: Africa, Europe, NorthAmerica, South America, Southeast Asia and Oceania, East Asia and South & West Asia. The Regional Directors act as the ambassador for their regions, to ensure that the organisation can deliver effectively at a regional level considering specific geographic, cultural, language and other differences. The Regional Director for Southeast Asia and Oceania is based in Singapore and is supported by a Deputy Regional Director. The Governor of Tokyo and the Governor of Jakarta represent the region’s cities on the Steering Committee as C40 vice-chairs.
The Head of Implementation, Southeast Asia will report to the Regional Director (RD) for East, Southeast Asia & Oceania and will work closely with the Deputy Regional Director for the region. The Head of Implementation, Southeast Asia will collaborate with the global C40 Director of Climate Action Implementation to support the region’s cities in accelerating the implementation of the most impactful climate actions to radically reduce greenhouse gas emissions and climate risks, while supporting a green and just recovery. The position will also work closely with teams across C40, as well as other city and climate organisations in the region, to ensure cities have access to the most relevant and effective assistance, learning from their peers across other C40 cities, and that mayors are supported in their efforts to bring ambitious climate policies into action delivering effective on-the-ground results.
