The European Investment Bank (EIB) has released the findings of the 2022 Municipality Survey, covering 744 municipalities across the European Union (EU) and found that:

  • 60% consider investments in climate mitigation and adaptation infrastructure to be insufficient 
  • ​60% plan to boost investments in these areas
  • More developed regions plan to invest more in adaptation and mitigation
  • 80% find a lack of funding and lengthy and unclear regulatory processes as major obstacles to investment 
  • There is an ongoing climate skills gap: 69% of municipalities are concerned by a lack of climate experts
  • The proportion of municipalities defined as “being ahead in green measures” stands at 27% – far lower than the 45% that are head in digital skills and measures.
