The science is clear: Cities are hot spots for climate change, as reported by the latest IPCC report. With 70% of global CO2 emissions coming from urban areas, where 7 out of 10 people will live by 2050, the solution to the climate crisis requires bold climate action in cities.
The combined impacts of Covid-19 and the current onslaught of climate shocks and stressors emphasizes the need for the reimagining of a vision for protection systems for the future – where people are better protected from extreme risk. Insurance is a part of that protection system in cities to respond to climate risks as extreme heat and other urban climate shocks and stressors force us to build protection systems for the future.
C40 Cities Finance Facility and Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance have just released new research which outlines the role of PPFs in integrating benefits in sustainable infrastructure.

The 2021 State of Cities Climate Finance Report examines the current state of urban climate investment, the barriers to reaching the needed investment levels, and the steps to overcoming these challenges.
The aim of this discussion paper is to map the PPF landscape and identify gaps in the project preparation offering to cities for sustainable and resilient infrastructure, using information gathered for the Green City Finance Directory.
This report sets the stage to explore the mandate and capacities of National Development Banks in accelerating financing for local governments’ climate-smart urban infrastructure.
While many cities have begun enacting policies and programs to build resilience towards climate hazards, there are numerous barriers to financing urban adaptation activities.
This week the Alliance and the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center released a brief, An Analysis of Urban Climate Adaptation Finance Tracking.
From the USD 20.5 trillion pledged to COVID-19 recovery globally, only USD 1.1 trillion have been committed to cities. This Alliance policy brief looks at COVID-19 recovery assistance for cities from key funders – national governments, Development Finance Institutions (DFIs), and the private sector.
The Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance is participating as a knowledge partner in the U20, and has recently contributed to a whitepaper on Efficiency and Diversification: A Framework for Sustainably Transitition to a Carbon-neutral Economy.
This new Policy Brief focuses specifically on enhancing the role that National Development Banks play in supporting the acceleration of climate-smart urban infrastructure.
