SAVE THE DATE: Financing Climate Action in Regions and Cities: Launch & Conference 

Financing Regions and Cities  

When? June 22nd, 2022

Since 2020, the OECD and the European Commission (DG REGIO) have been engaged in a joint project to improve the understanding of the financial role of regions and cities in the carbon-neutral transition by enhancing the tracking, measurement, and mobilisation of subnational public climate finance. The Financing Climate Action in Regions and Cities conference, taking place on 22 June 2022, will present the outputs of this project and the newly created Subnational Government Climate Finance Hub. It will also convene numerous stakeholders, international organisations, national and subnational governments, and academics to answer key lingering questions about the financial role of subnational governments in the carbon-neutral transition:  

  • How much are subnational governments spending and investing on climate change adaptation and mitigation?  

  • How has their climate-related spending and investment evolved over time?  

  • What public revenue streams are available to subnational governments to fund and finance their climate action? How can these sources be scaled-up?  

  • How to better align spending, investment, and revenue raising decisions of subnational governments with their green objectives?  

  • How subnational green budgeting can help mobilise additional public and private sources of finance, including green bonds?  

This hybrid event will address these themes in five sessions led by keynote speakers from the OECD, the European Commission, national and subnational governments, and climate finance experts and practitioners from other institutions.
