The Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance (CCFLA) comprises over forty leading organizations actively working to mobilize investment into low-carbon and climate-resilient infrastructure in cities and urban areas internationally.  

CCFLA Mission

To catalyze and accelerate additional capital flows to cities, maximize investment in climate smart infrastructure, and close the investment gap in urban areas over the next fifteen years.


The CCFLA was launched at the United Nations Secretary-General’s Climate Summit in September 2014. In 2016, R20 Regions of Climate Action was elected to lead the Secretariat of CCFLA, partnering with three other organizations: FMDV, UNDP, and UNEP.
