  • Climate Change - Financing Resilient Infrastructure
    August 21, 10:00AM PST
    The effects of climate change are widespread and varied. Many cities are suffering from more frequent violent storms, severe droughts, and massive forest fires. As climate change becomes an ever-pressing challenge cities and urban areas are looking to fortify their infrastructure in more resilient ways. This resilient infrastructure is often much higher in upfront cost yet performs better over the long run and over the course of its lifetime the investment generally pays off. This means that multiple financing methods are often needed for these types of deals. During this installment of the CDFA // BNY Mellon Webcast Series expert speakers will discuss the types of financing tools that are needed in order to finance more resilient infrastructure development.
