EBRD Green Cities helps cities prioritise their climate and environmental challenges through producing Green City Action Plans – plans for implementing targeted infrastructure investments and policy measures for the next five-year period together with setting long-term visions and measurable goals. The programme also helps facilitate and stimulate sustainable urban infrastructure investments, and support cities to access green finance. City administrations and key stakeholders receive capacity building trainings under EBRD Green Cities to prepare themselves to prepare, implement and manage infrastructure projects as well as policy and regulatory measures.
Political will in the city administrations to make their cities to become more sustainable and climate resilient is the most important criteria. Cities capacities’ for enabling future investments and avoiding duplications with other similar facilities are also considered.
Productions of Green City Action Plans are supported by a group of experts valued approximately EUR 200,000-350,000 for the duration of the assignment. Mega-cities with multiple spatial clusters and regions to be considered are supported with a higher amount based. Certain infrastructure investment may be eligible for grants.
A municipal or regional (sub-national) government entity with population greater than 50,000 can apply by committing to sign a trigger investment with EBRD. Trigger investment will be required to meet certain environmental improvement standards subject to type of infrastructure.
