The activity is to support the development and dissemination of a comprehensive report focusing on Cities. This activity seeks to build knowledge on the applicability of Output- Based Aid (OBA) and Results-based Financing (RBF) schemes in urban climate change mitigation strategies. The overarching objective of this activity is to inform the dialogue on the implementation of OBA and RBF mechanisms in the emerging climate change agenda, through a holistic knowledge and operational approach to develop and dissemination a comprehensive report focusing on Cities.

Several analytical activities have been developed including a report on New Perspectives on Results-Based Blended Finance for Cities: Innovative Finance Solutions for Climate-Smart Infrastructure (2019), a note on RBF for Pro-Poor and Climate-Smart Investments in Cities (2019), a report on RBF Climate Finance in Practice: Delivering Climate Finance for Low-Carbon Development (2017), and a report RBF in Disaster Risk Management and Climate Resilience: The Example of OBA (2017).  The activity developed an e-learning course based on these reports and further disseminated these knowledge products through webinars and face-to-face workshops. Also, an online collaborative platform was established to share knowledge on an ongoing basis.
