The Coalition for Urban Transitions presents – Investing in a sustainable urban future: A guide to national and sub-national reform.

The creation of clean, compact, and connected cities can stimulate job creation and economic growth, improve air quality and living standards, and avoid the costs of sprawl – all while reducing carbon emissions. However, the sustainable urban infrastructure financing gap currently exceeds $1 trillion per year. Join us for a lively discussion on the means and methods of addressing this critical gap. This event will be the official launch of a major new publication ‘Scaling up investment for sustainable urban infrastructure: A guide to national and sub-national reform’ co-authored by the London School of Economics and the Coalition for Urban Transitions.
