This report offers initial findings on the general challenges and mechanisms behind the transition towards a net zero carbon buildings sector, helping shed light on concrete pathways cities can implement to decarbonize the building sector.
As COP28 closes with a groundbreaking commitment to transition away from fossil fuels making headlines across the media landscape, the CCFLA team has taken time to reflect on the progress made during this year’s conference in driving our mission forward—to accelerate urban climate finance.
This report presents the first assessment of ten MDBs’ contributions to urban climate finance in L&MICs and explores opportunities for them to do more. Produced in collaboration with the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group and the Global Covenant of Mayors, it provides analysis, insights, and recommendations to position urban climate finance as an important element of the MDB reform agenda and inform decision-making.
This report is part of a three-part series led by CCFLA to promote an understanding of financing barriers to net zero carbon building and identifies how national, state, and local policy and regulatory frameworks can be improved to drive private and public investment in this sector.
This blog examines the barriers that small and intermediary cities find to financing the infrastructure needed to meet their climate goals, and how Project Preparation Facilities (PPFs) can help these cities successfully finance climate-related infrastructure projects.
This report assesses the social and economic effects of extreme heat through the prism of twelve cities that are already enduring and addressing dramatic impacts of heat waves. Heat’s disproportionate impact on cities—and the ironic reality that more and more people are flocking to them due to climate change’s burgeoning impacts elsewhere—compelled us to quantify and explore the seismic ramifications of our burning planet.
This report is a continuation of an economic study undertaken in partnership with Vivid Economics. In phase one of this work, released in August 2021, we found that worker productivity losses totalled $100 billion in the United States alone in 2020, a number which will double in 2030 and rise to $500 billion by 2050.
