- Implementing Partners C40 GIZ
The C40 Mayor’s Summit in Buenos Aires ran from 19-21 October and brought together the largest-ever gathering of C40 mayors, including more Global South mayors than ever before. Here they reaffirmed their cities’ commitment to being doers, not delayers, in climate action and underscored the urgent need to accelerate investment in green infrastructure. On the Summit’s final day, the C40 Cities Finance Facility (CFF) announced their new portfolio of cities entering the project’s third phase.
With generous funding from the UK, German and French governments, the cities of Accra, Jakarta, Bogotá, Dakar, Kuala Lumpur, Salvador, Drakenstein, Mumbai, Medellín, Lima, Rio de Jãneiro, Cape Town and Freetown will benefit from support in preparing their next climate action infrastructure projects through 2024.
These cities have been selected across a range of sectors including mobility, buildings and energy, adaptation and nature-based solutions, and waste management.
The projects in these cities cover a range of climate solutions in different sectors including mobility, buildings and energy, adaptation and nature-based solutions, and waste management.
Across the Global South, C40 and the German Agency for Development Cooperation (GIZ) are supporting 34 projects expected to leverage over $1 billion of funding by the time they are implemented.
To date, the CFF has supported the development of 20 climate action infrastructure projects in 17 cities, including five non-C40 cities. These projects are expected to contribute to reducing approximately 2.5 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
