Introduction to the Gap Fund Followed by Q&A Sessions
Join us during four sessions from 21st – 27th April to learn more on the Gap Fund and its offerings as we’ll discuss what the Gap Fund does and how it can support your city.
The City Climate Finance Gap Fund was launched in September 2020 with the aim to help cities in low and middle-income countries strategize, plan and prepare climate mitigation and adaption projects in their urban environment. It is financed by the German and Luxembourg governments and is delivered by two implementing agencies, the World Bank and the European Investment Bank, the latter in partnership with Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and supported by GCoM, C40, ICLEI and the Alliance.
In order to raise awareness among potential beneficiaries, the Gap Fund partners are organising an introductory webinar series targeted for different regions. This is as an opportunity for cities, local authorities and their partners to get a better understanding of what the Gap Fund is, how it works and what type of support it can provide for different projects and initiatives. The event will also provide some examples of different project types that are being brought to the Fund and will discuss issues around eligibility criteria, eligible sectors, project development stage and the nature of the support provided.
Please register here or using the link below: a calendar invitation with a connection link on the session of your choice will be circulated in due course with detailed information on the agenda and the topics to be covered. The series will be conducted in English, selected sessions will have simultaneous interpretation in Portuguese and Spanish or French.
