European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)
EBRD Green Cities strives to build a better and more sustainable future for cities and their residents. The programme achieves this by identifying, prioritising and connecting cities’ environmental challenges with sustainable infrastructure investments and policy measures.
Green Cities works in 3 phases:
- Developing a Green City Action Plan (GCAP): Identifies and prioritises city challenges and develops a long term plan with specific short term actions.
- Implementing the GCAP: Working with local stakeholders, the city implements the infrastructure investments and policy measures as outlined in the GCAP. The EBRD can support the city in these efforts by providing access to finance, as well as concessional loans and grants.
- Monitoring the GCAP: The city periodically reviews the Green City actions and their impacts on the environment.
