The C40 Cities Finance Facility (CFF), funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and the United States Agency for International Development, is one of the initiatives through which C40 is bridging the gap between cities and finance. The CFF, implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH together with C40, facilitates access to finance for climate change mitigation and resilience projects in urban areas by providing technical assistance to develop cities’ sustainability priorities into bankable investment proposals.
As part of its ongoing development, the CFF has recently launched its own website, which will allow city officials and other stakeholders to learn about the CFF’s activities, explore key resources about cities and climate change, and apply for support.
The new website includes detailed pages on the CFF's current projects, in Bogotá and Mexico City, outlining the project's objectives and progress achieved so far through key statistics and visual infographics.
The News & Events section features recent coverage of the two projects in both international and national media, and a list of past and upcoming events at which the C40 Cities Finance Facility will play a key role.
The Knowledge Library is an interactive collection of reports, videos, tools and briefing guides, which we encourage visitors to explore to understand more in depth the key issues in the fields of climate change, urbanisation and climate change. The information currently featured will be complemented by the CFF's own project briefings, webinars and case studies shortly.
Finally, the new website features an application portal where cities will soon be able to apply for CFF support.
The C40 Cities Finance Facility would like to thank Code and Theory for all their work in ensuring the new website is interactive and easy to use.
