Local Government

The Government of India has numerous ongoing developmental and social schemes for urban development. These schemes have components of infrastructure development, institutional development and capacity building for local governments which can be integrated with climate change planning to ensure sustainable development.

Low carbon growth projects at local government level can be financed through various mechanisms and by various institutions, and often a combination of mechanisms and tools is used for a project. For example, a municipality seeking to retrofit its district heating system might use a combination of a soft loan from the state or a designated special purpose fund (with donor contributions); a portion of its own budget to finance a percentage of the project cost up-front; and financing from the equipment provider to pay for any new equipment using the energy cost savings from the project to repay the loans and the vendor.
