Matchmaker provides subscribers with information on climate resilient infrastructure projects worldwide through a specialized project dashboard derived from the unique CDP Cities disclosure platform and our partners.
Often climate related activities in cities are isolated from economic development outreach, creating communication and information barriers between cities and potential investors. Matchmaker bridges this divide by working with cities to highlight projects in flood control, waste management, sustainable transportation, renewable energy, water management, and energy efficiency. Matchmaker serves as a clearinghouse for cities to showcase planned projects to the finance sector and better position them to mitigate against and adapt to climate change.
Benefits for Matchmaker subscribers
Benefits for participating cities
CDP has launched the 2022 sustainable finance cohort for cities. The Catalyze Cohort is an opportunity for local governments to advance projects related to building energy efficiency through professional development to build the skills to develop and finance projects for equitable and sustainable communities. Participation in the cohort will build knowledge on project conceptualization, project development and financing mechanisms while providing an opportunity to connect with other local governments, public authorities, investors and businesses.
Explore toolkits, webinars and other resources about social equity
in infrastructure, funding and financing sustainability projects, and urban
climate finance topics. These resources are designed for local governments to
build sustainable and equitable communities.
In 2020, over 1,100 projects worth 72bn USD were disclosed by 400+ cities globally. Please contact us to inquire about subscribing to the Matchmaker platform.
