LAIF & CIF contribution by sector: The Cities we need in LAC Countries

Monday, 20 September, 2021

Through the Latin America and Caribbean Investment Facilities (LAIF and CIF), the EU is leveraging investments to support sustainable urban development. By combining EU grants with loans as part of a sustainable and integrated approach, LAIF and CIF are supporting urban mobility, water, sanitation and waste management improvements and affordable social housing, among others, in LAC cities. Moreover, given the vulnerability of cities to climate change and disasters, LAIF and CIF are helping build their resilience to minimise potential loss of life and livelihoods from future shocks.
