Delivering Results for Low-Carbon and Climate-Resilient Cities Rapid urbanization in emerging economies has often led to chaotic and inefficient infrastructure, with negative effects on the environment. For a better quality of life, future growth and climate-resilient development requires action at the city level, and requires new ways of financing infrastructure in less-developed urban communities.
This self-paced online course is available on the World Bank's "Open Learning Campus" and describes how each of countries who signed the Paris Agreement will lay out the actions they will take to reduce emissions and increase resilience to the effects of climate change using RBF.
GPRBA is supporting its first irrigation project in Burkina Faso, designed to help small-scale farmers stabilize production and stave off the challenges of drought and excessive rainfall. This brief clip features a beneficiary farmer looking forward to greater yields.
Combating climate change requires international cooperation and trillions of “climate-smart” private investments to be channeled through blended public and multilateral financing. This webinar discusses how to mobilize and scale up these types of investments using RBF.
This map shows where GPRBA has funded climate change mitigation projects and the type of climate-friendly technology used, along with the estimated number of direct beneficiaries.
