C40 City Solutions Platform

Leading cities around the world are searching for innovative solutions to the major climate challenges they face, ranging from adapting to the effects of climate change, to providing their citizens with low carbon energy, waste, water and mobility options.

By providing cities and solution providers a program for working together on specific climate challenges at an earlier stage than usual, the City Solutions Platform (CSP) ensures that the actors reach a common understanding of the challenges in order to co-create tangible solutions. The CSP works with cities to engage them in peer-to-peer activity with the private sector, academia and civil society. This enables solution providers to co-create innovative methodologies, technologies, and new business methods to solve cities’ priority climate challenges.
