The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has received a €87 million contribution approved by the Green Climate Fund’s (GCF) Board. The funding will support the EBRD’s Green Cities Facility for climate-focused sustainable urban development in Albania, Armenia, Georgia, Jordan, FYR Macedonia, Moldova, Mongolia, Serbia and Tunisia.

EBRD and GCF financing will help cities and municipal utility companies to tackle their most pressing climate challenges such as greenhouse gas emissions, climate change adaptation, energy intensity, solid waste management, replacement of inefficient street lighting and water service management.

Through the Facility’s support, EBRD cities will develop Green City Action Plans (GCAPs) to identify priorities and actions to overcome environmental, social and economic challenges. Globally, cities account for around 70 per cent of CO2 emissions and action is urgent.
