According to the IPCC, the 21st century will be the “urban century.” A population increasingly living in cities will require more urban infrastructure, and the finance to respond to these needs. This trend will have dramatic implications for our planet.

The Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance (CCFLA), with the support of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development, has kick-started a major effort in 2022 to tackle the challenges in achieving net zero carbon buildings at scale, and highlight the importance of financing net zero carbon buildings at the city level. At COP 27, CCFLA will convene city stakeholders to discuss city-level policies and financing modalities that can facilitate public and private investment in low-carbon buildings.

This event will present the key initial findings of CCFLA’s soon-to-be-launched zero carbon building instruments city guide and reflect on the main barriers to investment and financial and non-financial/policy solutions.
