Project Details

City Climate Finance Gap Fund

In the face of climate change and in an effort to limit global warming to 1.5°C, cities worldwide are highly involved in developing climate action plans. Experience of various project preparation facilities (Financing Energy for Low-carbon Investment – Cities Advisory Facility (FELICITY), C40 Cities Finance Facility (C40-CFF), Cities Development Initiative for Asia (CDIA)) has shown, however, that there exists a critical struggle in bringing projects identified in sectoral or climate plans from project concept stage to feasibility stage. Therefore, it has been determined that municipal authorities should be provided with on-demand expert support through the project at hand in such contexts of insufficient planning, design and preparation capacities at the local level. A special focus will be put on the challenges cities and local governments in low- and middle-income countries face.
