Join a challenge

Do you have a solution for one of these problems? Submit it to a challenge for the opportunity to receive support or other rewards.

Financing the New Urban Agenda

Globally, $4.5 – $5.4 trillion is needed to fill the urban infrastructure finance gap. Only 3% of this amount is available through official development assistance (ODA).

Promoting territorial development

Only 1.5% of the world’s land is home to half of its production. Thick and persistent divisions between places doing well and those that are not are exacerbating inequalities and human suffering, fueling discontent and disrupting development.

Enhancing urban resilience to climate change and disaster risks

As cities grow, so does their exposure and vulnerability to natural disasters. With over 90% of all urban centers located in coastal areas, cities are facing increasing risks from devastating hurricanes, floods, and other natural hazards that are becoming more frequent, intense, and severe due to climate change.
