Facilitating access to climate finance through effective multilevel governance

European Development Days 2021

15 June 2021, 13:00 - 13:45
- online

Organised by the European Commission, the European Development Days (EDD) event has, since 2006, brough the development community together annually to share experiences that inspire new partnerships and innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. This year's event will take place from 15–16 June under the theme: "The Green Deal for a Sustainable Future”.

Join ICLEI and its Urban-LEDS II project on 15 June from 13:00–13:45 CEST in an EDD session exploring facilitating access to climate finance.

A majority of the global population is set to live in urban areas. This puts city and local authorities at the forefront of implementing the changes and actions necessary for transitioning towards a sustainable local future in line with the Paris Agreement. With the global COVID-19 pandemic further exacerbating social and economic challenges, realising this transition and accelerating climate action hinges on the ability of local authorities and stakeholders to identify and channel available funding opportunities by designing bankable projects.

This session will invite the audience to explore solutions for bridging the climate action finance gap via more effective multi-level governance, peer-learning and sustainable development and financing strategies developed by cities from Africa, Asia and Europe taking part in the DG INTPA-funded Urban-LEDS II project.
