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.
