A climate investment showcase with the Transformative Actions Program (TAP)
One of the main bottlenecks identified why local governments continue to be unable to access climate finance is the limited knowledge about the needs and requirements of funders. Furthermore, they rarely have the opportunity to engage with them directly. In a similar way, financial institutions and investors encounter difficulties in identifying bankable projects from sub-national governments and have limited exposure to the wide range of projects that cities have.
This event supported by GIZ / FELICITY, with a focus on the Latin American and Caribbean region, aimed to (i) contribute to a better understanding of financing opportunities (ii) give tips and tricks of project pitching, as well as (iii) enable the space for selected projects to test their pitch and concept.
After the presentations, eight TAP project developers divided in two groups (in each group four) had the opportunity to make their pitch using a standard template, and get recommendations from the group and a jury consisting of financial partner/institution representatives.
Interpretation have been offered in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
