This “City Creditworthiness: Self-Assessment & Planning Toolkit” is part of the City Creditworthiness Initiative that aims to provide local authorities with comprehensive, hands-on, and long-term support and help them:
- Achieve higher creditworthiness by strengthening financial performance;
- Develop an enabling legal and regulatory, institutional, and policy framework for responsible sub-national borrowing through reforms at the national level;
- Improve the “demand” side of financing by developing sound, climate-smart projects that foster green growth;
- Improve the “supply” side of financing by engaging with private sector investors.
