Launched in 2017 by the European Union, SECO and AFD, the CICLIA facility supports 20 to 25 cities in sub-Saharan Africa in preparing low-carbon and resilient urban projects.
Overview of the project
CICLIA supports 38 African cities in the formulation of low-carbon projects that are resilient to the impacts of climate change.
For example, CICLIA allowed the financing of a project in Monrovia to rehabilitate precarious neighborhoods. The study implemented a participatory approach with the population and community leaders in order to collect climate data, as conventional data is very scarce in this geography. The project identified construction practices with better quality and local materials to improve the sustainability of buildings. The collective social facilities and my investments identified will allow to fight against floods, strengthen the social link and improve the living conditions of the populations. An early warning system is being developed to prevent natural disasters (heavy storms etc.)
The objective is to provide access to climate finance for local governments in sub-Saharan Africa.
Nous pourrons vous transmettre les chiffres escomptés pour le projet ultérieurement.
- The improvement of the living conditions of the population,
- An opening up of precarious neighborhoods,
- Collective spaces for youth, sustainable materials used,
- A participatory approach strengthened with the development of an urban nursery initiative.
This project is financed by the AFD (French Development Agency) and the World Bank.
Launched in 2017 by the European Union, SECO and AFD, the CICLIA facility supports 20 to 25 cities in sub-Saharan Africa in preparing low-carbon and resilient urban projects. Concretely, CICLIA finances sectoral plans, design studies and technical assistance in all sectors of the sustainable city to help local governments in Sub-Saharan Africa develop projects that contribute to combating climate change.
