Investments in urban infrastructure can tackle the climate crisis, spark COVID-19 economic recovery, create quality jobs, strengthen resiliency and address inequities in the built environment and infrastructure services — but designing and financing sustainability projects can be challenging. These resources were developed for local governments pursuing social equity in infrastructure, funding and financing sustainability projects, and other urban climate finance topics to equip and inspire your local government’s climate action journey. Contact [email protected] with questions or to request additional resources.
This toolkit is designed for people working within local governments to ignite ideas on how to ideate, design, implement and finance projects that equitably benefit people and the planet.
This set of financing menus outlines options for financing and funding projects, relevant resources and links to case studies.
