City Finance Framework
The City Finance Framework developed by BwB provides city officials with a quantitative screening tool to identify promising projects. It calculates a Project Readiness Level (“PRL”) score, using which, users are able to ascertain the “maturity” of any project being evaluated - lower scores primarily reflecting early stage concepts and higher scores reflecting operation ready projects.
The course provides knowledge and insights on the sustainable infrastructure investment processes. It has been prepared for local or regional government officials and for project developers to learn how to prepare the case for investment and the steps involved in a successful financial transaction.
BwB also conducted workshops with the project teams where each team has the opportunity to apply the City Finance Framework. The output from the framework helps each project understand their stage and steps towards bankability.
