Financing a Green Recovery in Cities - Virtual Panel
The global COVID-19 pandemic has led to a significant and sudden deterioration in the financial positions of cities across the world. In response to the pandemic’s economic and fiscal impacts, many DFIs, including MDBs, have accelerated investments and availed of innovative capital-market instruments to support sovereign and sub-sovereign borrowers. As MDBs continue to rely on sovereign guarantees to secure their loans, countries remain the primary counterpart to post-COVID lending operations, however cities are increasingly seen as an important focal point for financing operations and have an opportunity to reframe their investment priorities in a way that aligns with global priorities (e.g., Paris Agreement) to ensure their projects are prioritized.

This virtual panel, framed by research conducted by C40, CCFLA and FELICTIY-GIZ, will provide an opportunity for direct dialogue between financial institutions and cities on green recovery in the urban context.
