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. 

GPRBA's most recent publication discusses the context for applying results-based approaches, blending public funds with commercial capital to finance low-carbon and resilient infrastructure in cities.
