Urban Climate Finance - low-carbon and resilient transition of cities



Urban Climate Finance empowering low-carbon and resilient transition of cities

Despite the key role that cities play in global pollution and green-house gasses (GHG) emissions, measures aimed at engaging effectively local governments in the global efforts to tackle climate change, are still limited.

This project will address the research question: Which are the key factors that can enable cities and local authorities to use the opportunities offered by the Paris Agreement Article 6 (6.2.-6.4), to raise the ambition and to operationalize local climate mitigation, at the same time attracting financial resources for local climate adaptation?
