This event takes place December 10, Cities and Regions pavilion (Agora), COP21 Green Zone (Le Bourget), 15:00 to 16:30.

Cities represent around 70% of global CO2 emissions but they often struggle to finance their low-carbon interventions. Only a minor share of international climate finance is reaching cities. The event discusses innovative solutions to improve cities’ access to climate finance, such as matchmaking platforms, green bonds, result-based finance, pooled-finance instruments and innovation labs for city-level climate finance.
