|Description=The TAP managed by ICLEI aims to raise local and regional climate ambitions as well as to accelerate the implementation of transformative local climate actions.
Designed as a 10-year program, the TAP aims to raise local and regional climate ambitions as well as to accelerate the implementation of climate actions in the crucial pre-2020 and post-2020 phases.  
+
|Goals=Led by ICLEI, the TAP was first launched in 2015 with the goal to catalyze and improve capital flows to cities, towns, and regions and strengthen the capacity of local and regional governments to access climate finance and attract investment.
Applications to the TAP2015 were accepted until 15 August 2015. The TAP called for two types of projects: “fast-track transformers” – projects ready for implementation, with an identified need for funding, a clear budget and management concept – and “post-2020 transformers” – projects which require assistance in earlier development stages (capacity building, technical know-how and strategy development, as well as funding).  
+
Furthermore, showing the demand and diversity of local projects, TAP contributes to raise awareness and advocates closing the gap between the availability and the accessibility of climate funds by subnational governments.
All projects will be visualized on the TAP Online Platform, which will be launched in October 2015, and up to 100 projects will be selected to receive particular TAP endorsement. Submitters of these selected projects will have the opportunity to present the project at the TAP2015 Pavilion at COP21.  
+
|Activities=As of 2019, the TAP pipeline has 45 projects with an identified investment need of 2.5 billion euro.
Embedded within the scope of the Local Government Climate Roadmap, the TAP will support and inform existing initiatives such as the Compact of Mayors and the Compact of States and Regions, as well as the Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance (CCFLA).
+
TAP is a partnership of many organizations committed to the TAP objectives, each contributing in a specific way, defined by the respective partners, in consultation with ICLEI. The ICLEI World Secretariat (ICLEI WS) maintains and develops new partnerships. These include public and private finance institutions, governments at all levels, United Nations and technical support agencies, city and subnational networks, associations, research and other non-governmental organisations, philanthropic foundations, and initiatives. Partners involved technically and/or financially build up a value chain supporting each step of the project cycle. TAP partners as of November 2019 are:
|Goals=TAP aims to improve access to existing capital flows to cities and regions, catalyze and accelerate additional capital flows and maximize investment in low-carbon and climate -resilient urban development and governance processes. The Program will work towards these goals by following two separate but interrelated missions:
+
● UN-Habitat,
1.TAP’s political mission: actively advocating for better and quicker access to larger amounts of climate finance for cities and regions.
+
● GIZ/FELICITY
2.TAP’s climate mission: assisting the pre-brokering between subnational authorities and financing bodies (where possible) and mobilizing cities and regions to design transformative and bankable climate actions.
+
● GIZ/CoM SSAIII
|Activities=TAP is based on partnerships that connect the goals of diverse stakeholders into one coherent value chain for developing robust, transformative and bankable projects that will accelerate low-to-no emission and climate-resilient development. Since the first call announced in 2015, more than 20 TAP projects were successfully financed and implemented, while several others were connected to financial institutions and partners, receiving global attention at events. As of September 2019, the TAP pipeline has 44 projects with an identified investment’s need of 2.3 billion euro.

Description

Description The TAP managed by ICLEI aims to raise local and regional climate ambitions as well as to accelerate the implementation of transformative local climate actions.
Objectives Led by ICLEI, the TAP was first launched in 2015 with the goal to catalyze and improve capital flows to cities, towns, and regions and strengthen the capacity of local and regional governments to access climate finance and attract investment.

Furthermore, showing the demand and diversity of local projects, TAP contributes to raise awareness and advocates closing the gap between the availability and the accessibility of climate funds by subnational governments.

Activities As of 2019, the TAP pipeline has 45 projects with an identified investment need of 2.5 billion euro.

TAP is a partnership of many organizations committed to the TAP objectives, each contributing in a specific way, defined by the respective partners, in consultation with ICLEI. The ICLEI World Secretariat (ICLEI WS) maintains and develops new partnerships. These include public and private finance institutions, governments at all levels, United Nations and technical support agencies, city and subnational networks, associations, research and other non-governmental organisations, philanthropic foundations, and initiatives. Partners involved technically and/or financially build up a value chain supporting each step of the project cycle. TAP partners as of November 2019 are: ● UN-Habitat, ● GIZ/FELICITY ● GIZ/CoM SSAIII ● Global Infrastructure Basel (GIB) Foundation, ● Global Fund for Cities Development (FMDV), ● European Investment Bank (EIB), ● R20 Regions of Climate Action (R20), ● Sustainable Infrastructure Foundation (SIF), ● C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40), ● Cities Alliance.

Projects received from local and regional governments go through a basic screening focusing on completeness and transformative approach and if fulfill, can benefit from tailored services offered by ICLEI and the TAP partners to guide project development and achieve maturity and financeability

One or two success stories achieved In the past five years, at least 23 TAP projects were successfully financed and implemented. In addition, many more were connected to financial institutions and partners while receiving attention at international events (e.g at the climate COPs, Resilient Cities Global Forum, etc.).
