Converting ideas into solid and financeable projects is one of the main obstacles that cities face when developing climate action plans. Many proposals for low-carbon and climate-resilient infrastructure never make it to the investment phase.
In this session, organized by the IDB, we will explore how various organizations mobilize the technical resources that cities need to develop projects that are attractive to investors.
Through the experience of C40’s Urban Shift program, CityAdapt, and the IDB’s City Lab in pilot projects for climate change adaptation in the cities of San Salvador, Santo Domingo, and Xalapa, we will highlight the importance of gathering best practices, seeking new forms of financing, and collaborating to drive innovative local solutions.
The event was broadcast in Spanish, English, and Portuguese.
