During 2016, IIED explored with partners the value of local finance in urban and rural settings, comparing innovation from across climate, energy, forestry and urban services. The ‘Money where it matters’ event, on December 7–8 2016, brought together southern partners with public and private financiers and wider development experts to reflect on insights from this analysis, and distil the opportunities and challenges of harnessing international and domestic finance for local investment. The process identified outstanding questions and built shared commitment for the next phase — to deliver effective investment in climate and socially positive local action.
