Over the years, we have witnessed rapid urbanization rates globally and based on various estimates by 2050, approximately 66% of the population will be living in urban areas. Due to high population, increasing urbanization, lack of infrastructure - Asia and African continents shall become the leading battlegrounds for managing climate change. These regions shall also become the knowledge sharing hubs on aspects like climate policies, mitigation strategies and technologies as well as the most important - Climate Finance. There is a wide variety of sources from which urban climate mitigation and adaptation actions may be financed, including city revenues, funds through bilateral /multilateral agencies, donor agencies, private sector investments, etc. This session focuses on how could the Urban Local Bodies and Transport Agencies reach out to bi-lateral / multi-lateral funding agencies for support in the fight against climate change.
To explore these topics, join us on a webinar on “Urban Transportation & Climate Finance” on 22nd Sep 2020 (Tue) from 5:30pm to 7pm (IST).
