“Our focus on sustainable development using unique technology and the fantastic partnerships we have built drive the success of this project. By integrating multiple groups, each with a valuable skill set, has proven a great way to create fundamental value, especially in developing economies where local knowledge is a highly critical driver of success.”

INVESTORS AND FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS
How the R20 addresses barriers to investment:
The R20 serves as a project and finance matchmaker. The R20 brings together decision makers, technology holders and financiers, all working together towards this same goal: create the proper conditions enabling the development of bankable projects.
Providing assistance to sub-national governments is not R20’s sole objective. In order to attract investors the R20 ensures appropriate return on investments, which are comparable – if not more interesting – than other existing opportunities. Investors who show an interest in an R20-endorsed project can count on political and public policy security, technology security and financial security.
Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance (CCFLA)
Solving the climate finance gap will require the coordinated action of a multitude of different actors, working in awareness of the impact that the work of each can have on the effectiveness of others in accelerating the flow of climate finance.
The Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance (CCFLA) was launched at the United Nations Secretary-General’s Climate Summit in September 2014. It is a coalition of more than forty organizations actively working to catalyze and accelerate investment into low-carbon and climate-resilient infrastructure in cities and urban areas.
The Alliance brings together a diverse group of public and private institutions that do not usually work together. It facilitates collaboration that reinforces and expands the impact of members’ own activities to achieve macro-scale solutions for mobilizing investment in low-carbon, climate resilient urban infrastructure.
In 2016, R20 Regions of Climate Action was elected to lead the Secretariat of the CCFLA, partnering with three other organizations, FMDV, UNDP and UNEP.
