We are a community of municipal finance practitioners interested in financing climate change mitigation and adaptation projects at the sub-national level. We are seeking to explore more effective ways of working, identifying common solutions, and sharing approaches and ideas. Our practice of a shared set of frameworks, tools, information, stories and documents serves as a body of knowledge from which members can draw. The objective of this Community of Practice is to serve as a safe and trusted environment for members to connect, communicate and collaborate.
