The Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance
CPI is Secretariat for the Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance (CCFLA), the main multi-level and multi-stakeholder coalition aimed at closing the investment gap for urban subnational climate projects and infrastructure worldwide.
CCFLA provides a platform to convene and exchange knowledge among all relevant actors dedicated to urban development, climate action, and financing.
The more than 80 CCFLA members include public and private finance institutions, governments, international organizations, NGOs, research groups, and networks that represent most of the world’s largest cities.
The combined impacts of Covid-19 and the current onslaught of climate shocks and stressors emphasizes the need for protection systems for the future – where people are better protected from extreme risk.
