The Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance
CPI is Secretariat for the Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance (the Alliance), the main multi-level and multi-stakeholder coalition aimed at closing the investment gap for urban subnational climate projects and infrastructure worldwide.
The Alliance provides a platform to convene and exchange knowledge among all relevant actors dedicated to urban development, climate action, and financing.
The more than 55 Alliance 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.

In the wake of COP26, a renewed sense of urgency has gathered around climate finance and the complex and sometimes competing challenges this raises. CPI has released the in-depth version of its 2021 Global Landscape of Climate Finance report, which seeks to calibrate this discussion by providing the most comprehensive overview of global climate-related primary investment in 2019/2020.
The 2021 Global Landscape of Climate Finance shows that global climate finance reached USD 632 billion in 2019/2020.
