The Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance (CCFLA), in partnership with the United Nations Environment Porgramme (UNEP) and UrbanShift, will facilitate a dynamic discussion with city leaders, national government policymakers and urban climate finance experts. Participants will consider the role each stakeholder can play in scaling finance for urban climate adaptation. Ahead of the event, CCFLA will publish policy brief identifying 7 key actions for national policymakers to take to scale urban climate adaptation finance. This event will formally launch the call and open the dialogue on how the messaging can be taken forward by inviting and engaging with national policymakers directly.
