OECD Releases White Paper on Financing Green Urban Infrastructure co-Authored by Enid Slack

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has released a working paper called “Financing Green Urban Infrastructure.” The paper, co-authored by Enid Slack, presents an overview of practices and challenges related to financing green sustainable cities. It describes cities’ existing revenue sources, identifies other tools they could use including public-private partnerships, tax-increment financing, and value-capture taxes, and reflects on the challenges in mobilizing these instruments.
