The CFF is a collaboration of C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. The CFF supports cities in developing and emerging economies to develop finance-ready projects to reduce emissions limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels and strengthen resilience against the impacts of a warming climate. The CFF is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Development and Cooperation (BMZ), the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

The CFF is currently supporting projects in three other cities. Bogotá is building a first-of-its-kind 25-kilometre bicycle highway connecting citizens from low, middle and high-income neighbourhoods to work, education and recreation opportunities.  Mexico City is implementing a 22km Zero Emission Corridor on the major thoroughfare of Eje 8 Sur, by purchasing a fleet of electric buses and serving an estimated 185,000 users daily. eThekwini (Durban) is implementing a community-operated river restoration programme, clearing 3000km of watercourses surrounding the city and significantly reducing the city’s vulnerability to climate related flooding.
