About Four Twenty Seven
Happening This Week
NYC is planning $27 billion in green bond-funded infrastructure resiliency improvements. Green bond programs have become an essential funding tool for climate change initiatives in cities like Oakland, Los Angeles, and DC and issuance is expected to quadruple between 2013 and 2014.
This new financing strategy comes at an opportune time as a new EEA survey shows European countries struggling to move forward with climate change adaptation plans already included in legislation, citing "time, money, or technology" as significant obstacles.
Beyond finance, the private sector needs to get involved in climate adaptation. Our latest blog post, published on the Huffington Post, discusses the crucial role of business in community resilience.
