VERGE SF City Summit

City Summit brings together public and private sector leaders to address how cities and companies can partner to finance and implement resilient city infrastructure. It’s a powerful, one-day working session designed to accelerate scalable, replicable solutions to pressing urban challenges.

The invitation-only event brings together the insights and resources of C40, ICLEI, Rockefeller 100 Resilient Cities, CDP Cities, and the Urban Sustainability Directors Network. This extraordinary collaboration promises a rich, solutions-focused dialogue on such topics as:

  • How are cities unlocking and accessing new sources of capital, and what does it take to make resilience projects fundable?
  • What are the standards and metrics for defining resilient infrastructure, and what’s still needed?
  • How can cities work more collaboratively among finance, sustainability and building/operations departments to advance resilience projects?
  • How can cities bundle resilience projects more effectively as a portfolio, rather than engaging in a series of one-offs?
  • What are the new models of public-private partnerships to advance these solutions?
