The Gap Fund: Helping Cities Early on to Turn Climate Plans and Pipelines Into Action

Follow the event on Twitter #ClimateActionWBG

The event will present the City Climate Finance Gap Fund that is filling a critical gap in technical assistance funding at the very early stages of planning and project design to maximize climate impact, prepare and prioritize bankable urban climate investments and help cities in developing countries turn their climate plans and project pipelines into action.

It will highlight the key achievements of the fund thus far, examples on how cities in developing countries are tapping into Gap Fund technical assistance  and provide a vision of a coordinated approach with city governments, city networks, MDBs, Donors, national governments, and private sector to leveraging urban climate finance.

Minister Dieschbourg calls the lack of adequate financing "a real bottleneck" for key city-level climate projects and says this is where the Gap Fund comes in. She also said it is important to scale up efforts on this front and called for more support to the Gap Fund.
