Projects identification

The 100 Climate Solutions Project Campaign

Through this campaign, R20 and the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation (LDF) have identified over one hundred renewable energy, energy efficiency and waste management infrastructure projects from around the world. All project applicants have submitted official support letters from a public entity. Many networks and associations of local and regional governments and private companies, have fully supported the initiative, through a communication campaign to their members. The campaign is not a stand-alone one but is linked to a number of innovative financial mechanisms to facilitate the development of the most promising projects. On the one hand, the Pre-Investment Facilities (PIF), to conduct the feasibility studies required for bankability; on the other hand, the Leonardo DiCaprio Planet Pledge Fund (PPF), and the Green Investment Accelerator Fund (GIAF), which are the cornerstones of Capex funding and secured debt. Also the campaign is fully aligned with the mission, the objectives and the bottom-up approach of the Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance (CCFLA).
