MAIN GOALS - GENERAL ACTIVITIES - FIELD OF EXPERTISES
The Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance (the Alliance) is a coalition of leaders committed to deploying finance for city level climate action at scale by 2030.
The Alliance serves as the only multi-level and multi-stakeholder coalition aimed at closing the investment gap for urban and subnational climate projects and infrastructure worldwide.
The Alliance was launched in 2014 by the previous UN Secretary General. In 2019 the Alliance was officially renewed during the UNSG Climate Action Summit where the Climate Policy Initiative (CPI) took over Secretariat. Furthermore, the Alliance took over the hosting of the Leadership for Urban Climate Investment (LUCI) initiative – an ambitious framework for catalyzing climate action along the entire value chain of subnational climate finance and launched at the UN Climate Action Summit in 2019.
