A new web-portal to help cities become circular: the Circular City Funding Guide was launched 31 January 2020 at the Cities Forum in Porto, Portugal.
The guide provides information and support on funding and financing of the circular economy in an urban context. It was initiated as one of the actions under the Urban Agenda Partnership for Circular Economy and developed by external service providers and EIB experts involved in and funded by the European Investment Advisory Hub, a partnership between the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the European Commission.
This guide's 100+ funding sources, circular case studies, and circular city information and library provide ample opportunities to learn more about this subject and get inspiration for any city's circular transition. Look through the inspiring cases, contextual information and numerous funding sources!
Target audience: The guide has two main target groups: fund-seekers and funders of circular projects in cities. Fund-seekers can be local governments, businesses, and other actors that are active in urban contexts. Funders can be financial entities as well as public authorities that aim to set up a funding programme for circular projects.
