Impact City-Forest Financing

4 June 2020

Thursday 4 June 2020 | 4pm CET

Join us in discovering the City Finance Lab and the Northern Gateway project in Greater Manchester. Learn more about inspiring financing mechanisms that could help bring your project to light.

The City Finance Lab is Europe’s first dedicated platform supporting the development of innovative, replicable and scalable financing solutions that increase investment in climate-resilient, low-carbon and green urban projects for sustainable cities. Nature-based solutions represent a key opportunity for cities, having both climate change mitigation and adaptation benefits. However, cities have struggled to finance such projects due to difficulties in monetizing their benefits. Innovative financing solutions dedicated to cities and nature-based solutions can be developed and have the potential to unlock significant public and private sector financing for such projects. Discover Greater Manchester’s Northern Gateway project and participate in learning more about impact investing for your city-forest nexus.
