In the framework of the implementation of the Covenant of Mayors for Sub-Saharan Africa (CoM SSA), an initiative launched by the European Union, which aims to strengthen advocacy for a significant mobilisation of climate finance for the benefit of projects carried out by Local Communities, I have the honour to invite you to participate, as a panelist, in the webinar jointly organised by the CoM SSA, WAEMU and UCLG Africa under the theme Climate Finance for Adaptation and Mitigation Projects of African Municipalities: which financial vehicle to strengthen local climate dynamics?
This webinar focusing on the WAEMU zone will address the reflection on the establishment of innovative financial vehicles to mobilize public/private partnerships in order to accelerate the implementation of NDCs in Africa.
This webinar of 2H will address the following questions in particular:
• The nature of the actions to be supported
• The role of the private sector and the financial sector
• Challenges faced by cities in obtaining funding
• Existing funding programmes for local climate action
