Green finance, an essential lever to accelerate the decarbonisation of cities

Community decarbonisation and transition projects require substantial funding. Cities are therefore increasingly using green bonds, intended to finance exclusively projects with environmental benefits, as are the large companies with which they work. The market for these green bonds has exploded from $ 10 billion in 2013 to $ 200 billion in 2019. France is a world leader in this area. Other financial tools are being developed to support sustainable growth, such as green loans and impact credits.

Mobility as a service: the new rules of the game?

Africa of cities: between deconcentration and decentralization

What climate-responsible strategy for the African cities of tomorrow?

In 2100, the continent will represent the equivalent of 40% of the world’s population with 4.4 billion people, the majority of whom are new city dwellers. Driven by demographic pressure that threatens metropolises with urban asphyxiation, Africa must rethink its development model because urban congestion costs the continent several hundred million dollars per year. From Accra, the Ghanaian capital of “Go slow” to Lagos, the city of the Nigerian Far West, via Nairobi which loses a billion dollars a year in traffic jams: the urban challenges are immense.

Cities at war with single-use plastic

The city of Paris is trying to eradicate single-use plastic in preparation for the 2024 Olympic Games.
