Brasilia: Successful Local Government Fundraising and Project Pitching
Authors: Dr. Eszter Réka Mogyorósy, ICLEI World Secretariat; Alessandra Andreazzi Peres, Federal District Environment Secretariat, Brazil
While most local governments struggle to access funds for their low-emission and climate-resilient projects, within just one year Brasília, the federal capital of Brazil and government seat of the Federal District, managed to fundraise over USD 450M for implementation in 2021.
This paper aims to empower local and regional governments by giving a brief overview of the different financial sources, providing practical advice for fundraising and project pitching, using the successful example of Brasília as a model.This publication was produced for the Global Platform for Sustainable Cities.
