April 24, 2014
The Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility (PPIAF) and the World Bank’s Low-Carbon Livable Cities Initiative, in collaboration with the C40 Network, the Korea Development Institute (KDI) and the Korean Green Growth Trust Fund (KGGTF), are hosting the second City Creditworthiness Academy in Seoul, South Korea, this week, 21-26 April.
The City Creditworthiness Academy will assist senior financial officials from sub-national governments and public enterprises across the East Asia Region to master the underpinnings of creditworthiness and to develop an action plan to improve their creditworthiness and access to finance for climate-related infrastructure.
The agenda of the City Creditworthiness Academy offers an intense set of training modules ranging from revenue management to climate smart capital investment planning, from debt financing options to the enabling environment for sub-national finance. The training emphasizes peer-to-peer learning and the practitioners’ perspective. Best practices from the East Asia Region and from across the world will be presented and discussed.
