Climate impact and financing adaptation: Water as Leverage – investing millions in project origination to unlock billions for project implementation

Water as Leverage bridges the gap between project origination and project implementation, unlocking the billions available for financing implementation through investing the millions required for the first phases of the project development cycle.. It connects climate and water action finance to local needs for innovative and integral infrastructure investment, through an inclusive process.

In this side-event we demonstrate and scale the ambition of Water as Leverage as an approach for worldwide urban climate resilience, through water. During the session, our approach will be demonstrated by a deep dive into Water as Leverage Cartagena, with key note speakers from the Colombian government and the European Investment Bank. The ambition to scale Water as Leverage globally will be announced by the Dutch Minister of Infrastructure and Water Management and will be illustrated by statements from representatives from past and current Water as Leverage partners (both governmental and non-governmental).

Water as Leverage:

  • cuts across sectoral and administrative boundaries through the design, planning and financing of projects on the ground.
  • unites a growing global community of governments, cities, communities, designers, researchers and more, that join forces to further scale up and replicate Water as Leverage in their quest to reach the SDGs.
  • already puts into practice the guiding principles of the Water Action Agenda: it is substantial, innovative, transformative, scalable and replicable.
  • Means working together with everyone every step of the way, leaving no one behind.
  • has a proven track record in Southeast Asia, launched its first initiative in Latin America and celebrates its fifth anniversary this year.
