Short description: 
A set of publications reference funding methods from public institutions, the private sector but also from the civil society (e.g. crowdfunding). They include detailed features and processes to apply to, obtain or manage such funding opportunities.
Description: 
To complement their peer-learning initiative, the PROSPECT programme has released 5 thematic handbooks (tackling Public buildings, Private buildings, Transport, Public lightning and Cross-sectoral initiatives) aimed at referencing and explaining innovative financing schemes for cities’ sustainable energy and climate plans.
This set of publications reference funding methods from public institutions, the private sector but also from the civil society (e.g. crowdfunding). They include detailed features and processes to apply to, obtain or manage such funding opportunities.
The handbooks, even if originally designed to be used as resources for the peer-learning modules, can be useful even for cities or organizations that did not take part in the peer-learning modules. They are also filled with examples of good practices that are at the heart of their peer-learning programme.
