Over the last 16 months, the project “Green Finance for the Development of Smart Cities “, in its second edition, has succeeded in strengthening the competencies of public officials from seven Mexican cities thanks to the financial support of UK PACT (United Kingdom Partnering for Accelerated Climate Transitions). The purpose of the skill-building was to help identify, select and prepare investment projects that contribute to climate change mitigation, sustainable development, while promoting gender equality and social inclusion, by accessing sources or mechanisms of green finance or designing innovative business models to release public, private or mixed capital flows.

The following municipalities were the beneficiaries in this implementation version: Chihuahua, Hermosillo, Merida, Monterrey, Naucalpan, Villahermosa, and Zapopan.
