Cities Alliance is enhancing its strategic focus to better capture migration corridors and leverage cooperation among cities. A perspective of regional cooperation and systems of cities helps to erode administrative boundaries along migration. Instead, the focus is on connections with neighbouring cities and villages, as well as communities further afield, to better understand and leverage mobility patterns for local and national development.


Managing Systems of Secondary Cities provides data on the changing trends of secondary cities and the role they can play in regional and national development.

Connecting Systems of Secondary Cities examines how soft and hard infrastructure can foster equitable economic growth among secondary cities.
