    "Executives from the 40 largest cities plus 17 affiliate municipalities attended the C40"
    Comment traduire "affiliate"? --> dépendantes? associées, soeurs?

    Merci d'avance:confused:

    It's not too clear in English. My best guess would be that the C40 is an organisation for the 40 largest cities, but that other smaller cities and towns are allowed to join, not as full members but as affiliate members.

    Membres associés ????

    Are these affiliate cities neighbouring towns like an "agglomération" or twin cities like "villes soeurs"?:cool:

    The former US leader, whose Clinton Climate Initiative develops programmes to help cities cut the emissions blamed for global warming, called for commitments and concrete action at the meeting which ends Thursday.
