The Ivorian economic capital Abidjan has been chosen to host the first “Finance Your Cities” which takes place on 21 October 2022. The event, which focuses on financing sustainable cities in Africa, will be attended by local government representatives, investors and finance professionals.
The meeting is organised by the Global Fund for Cities Development (GFCD) in partnership with the government of Ivory Coast and the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU). “The aim is to accelerate financing for urban investments and climate action. This will complement national strategies and programmes, thus allowing for advanced financial engineering. This will also contribute to the achievement of the United Nations 2030 Agenda and the objectives of the Paris Climate Agreement,” says the GFCD.
