This working paper was prepared for the Coalition for Urban Transitions, a special initiative of the New Climate Economy project.  The coalition is a major international initiative to support decision makers to meet the objective of unlocking power of citieis for enhanced national economic, social and environmental performance, including refucing the risk of climate change.

This paper focuses on the role of national governments in mobilising and directing urban finance, with the aim of supporting policy makers and practitioners to think systematically about financing 3C urban development.
