Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance (CCFLA) Forum for Practitioners in Preparation of Subnational Projects in Mexico (4-6 May 2021)
FMDV (Global Fund for Cities Development) and ICLEI are co-organizers of the Forum for the community of practice on Subnational Project Preparation in Mexico, with the support of the Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance (CCFLA Alliance), which will be held online from 4 to 6 of May. In this three-day event, the first day (May 4) will be open to the public and will promote a broad vision of financing sources and financial schemes for urban development and the preparation of subnational climate projects in Mexico.
Today, project development, particularly at an early stage, is often underfunded although is the most crucial part of project design. Acknowledging the need for a stronger focus on the early stages of project development, and improved coordination between existing initiatives on a country basis, members of the CCFLA have decided to work collaboratively towards improved coordination between project support initiatives in Mexico.
Over the past two years, FMDV has co-chaired the CCFLA Project Preparation Action Group. Together with ICLEI, FMDV is facilitating the organization of this high-level event.
The event will serve as a unique, localized platform for experts, practitioners, and stakeholders from the public and the private sectors to share their expertise, best practices, and lessons learned on providing support to the development of bankable climate projects at the subnational level.
The Forum, with the participation of local, regional, and national government representatives, the finance community, and city networks will thus be geared towards:
- Improving cooperation and knowledge exchanges between Project Preparation Facilities and initiatives that have and are currently working with local and regional governments in Mexico, with a special focus on regional offices and representatives.
- Contributing to a better understanding of local needs for preparing bankable climate-resilient and low emission urban climate projects.
- Strengthening a multilevel collaboration and coordination between CCFLA members and the international finance community in Mexico.
