Communications and Advocacy activities promote Cities Alliance’s key messages on urban development in order to encourage policies and behaviour that contribute to the vision of sustainable cities without slums. Our key messages are:
Urbanisation is a positive forcethat has the potential to change societies and economies for the better.
Now is the time to plan for urbanisation. Urbanisation is inevitable. Policy makers, Mayors and planners—especially in Africa and Asia—should project and plan for urbanisation in order to take advantage of its opportunities. The decisions they make now will impact cities for the next 20-30 years.
