Training Event 5:

Sustainable Urban Governance: Building an Enabling Environment, Preparing Bankable Projects

Date: October 06, 2023
Time: 09:00 am – 12:00 nn
Meeting Room: 7

Training Provider:

Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)

Description of the training:

The need to strengthen enabling environments is crucial to the whole project cycle of climate-resilient urban investments. Knowledge and capacity gaps, as well as institutional limitations, hamper cities' ability to prepare and sustain bankable projects within fundamental enabling conditions.

How can cities build an enabling environment and prepare bankable projects towards sustainable urban development? Through the Philippine Urban Forum, GIZ Urban Act project, Cities Development Initiative for Asia (CDIA), and the United Cities and Local Governments Asia-Pacific (UCLG-ASPAC) jointly developed a 3-hr training session to answer this question. “Sustainable Urban Governance: Building an Enabling Environment, Preparing Bankable Projects, “aims to impart knowledge and experience in strengthening governance and institutional frameworks as enablers in developing and managing climate-resilient bankable urban projects.

GIZ Urban Act and UCLG-ASPAC will share the City Enabling Environment Assessment on Environmental and Climate Change Governance (CEE-ECG2023) that present country-specific enablers of fostering an environment conducive to inclusive, gender-responsive, and sustainable urban development. CDIA will further provide insights into the building blocks of creating and/or packaging bankable projects that will be attractive to financiers, including the private sector, for implementation. Together, the training will share practical insights on creating enabling environments and bankable urban investments, together with capacity development and institutional strengthening as reassurance for potential investors on sustainability.

Objectives

Amidst environmental challenges, cities must be equipped to mainstream climate change considerations into their urban development plans and projects. In contributing to this endeavor, the training aims to:
  1. Discuss sustainable urban governance towards climate resilience through the City Enabling Environment Assessment report of UCLG-ASPAC

  2. Present country ratings on institutional enabling conditions for inclusive and sustainable urban development to share inspiration

  3. Strengthen knowledge on preparing and packaging climate-resilient and bankable urban projects

  4. Facilitate learning exchange among multi-level stakeholders

Expected Outcomes/Outputs

The training seeks to support participants in answering these questions:
  1. How can local governments build an enabling environment for inclusive urban development, which is further crucial to the sustainability of urban investments?

  2. What key innovations/technical and financial solutions can cities apply to overcome the challenges of making their projects attractive to investors, including the private sector?

  3. What are the concrete pathways for cities to prepare bankable and viable climate-resilient projects and ensure institutional readiness?
