Watch full workshop: How to bring green energy to the local and regional level – the contribution of the EU and NPBIs

To meet the EU's climate targets by 2030, an additional annual public and private investment of EUR 260 billion is needed. National Promotional Banks and Institutions (NPBIs) already play a key role in tackling this investment gap by crafting long-term and tailor-made financing solutions locally. This online workshop, which took place on 13 October 2022, demonstrated the strong link of ELTI members with regional and local actors, as well as the capability to develop innovative financing solutions for energy efficiency and clean projects.

Theme & Agenda  Presentations   Conclusions   Keynote Speech   Press Release

In today’s world of continual changes and disruption, local authorities around the world have an increasingly important role to carry on relating with the provision of public services. In their agenda, they deal with great challenges as a result of their cities growing larger, thus straining basic infrastructure, coupled with the impact of natural disasters and other events linked to climate change. Meanwhile, the financial disruption brought about by the pandemic outburst and continuous ongoing geopolitical matters have also intensified these challenges.

Local authorities are confronted with profound economic challenges that circle the main issue in hand; notably the widening gap between the availability of financial resources and their growing needs.

Still, proper planning and financing systems are reasons for local governments to be optimistic as they offer opportunities for matching their needs with investment financing frameworks and tools.

In this workshop, we will share experiences and aim to identify successful financing mechanisms that allow municipalities to make strategic investments in their cities, support economic growth and social cohesion, and thus create confidence for better days ahead.

Registration

The Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB) would like to invite you to the webinar 'Have we learnt the lessons of the Covid-19 crisis? Investing in more and better social infrastructure for inclusive, resilient and sustainable societies' on Thursday, 30 September 2021 from 14:30 to 16:00 (CEST)

Growing social inequalities and chronic underinvestment in public infrastructure reinforce each other in increasing the vulnerability of societies and economies to unexpected shocks. Earlier this year, European leaders reaffirmed at the Porto Social Summit that the recovery must be sustainable, inclusive and fair, while infrastructure is currently a top priority of the G20.

Bridging critical social infrastructure gaps to ensure equitable access to high-quality and affordable essential services for all remains one of the most effective ways to promote social cohesion and integration. The session will take stock of the social infrastructure gap, with a special focus on Europe, make the case for the prioritisation and scaling up of financing in support of social sustainability objectives.
