The Path to Finance: How to Pitch Climate Projects
Daring Cities TAP Pitch Event | 28 October 2021 – 09:00 UTC+1
The TAP Asia-Africa Pitch Event will focus on financing opportunities for urban development projects. To provide a better understanding of technical assistance and funding opportunities, first a panel of international financing institutions and project preparation facility providers will give an overview of existing sources and practical examples on how to access these. Following, eight TAP projects developers from Africa and Asia will pitch their project to a jury composed by representatives from the finance sector. This will help not only them, but also other project developers attending the event to understand the gaps and weaknesses of the project concepts, and gain insights into the criteria and expectations of financial partners.
