Dear Consultative Group,

The Secretariat is pleased to provide an update on Cities Alliance proposals that have been processed since our last Update of 10 December 2009.

I am pleased to share with you two proposals recommended for approval, "Programmatic Regional City Development Strategy for Secondary Cities (Jordan)" and "Philippines Traffic and Transport Management for CDS Cities" (pending approval of Japanese non-core funds) which shall be considered approved on 15 March 2010, on a no-objection basis.

Please note that these proposals were under review prior to the Mumbai meeting and thus are being processed under the rules of the old Grant Facility.
