Cities Alliance supports collaboration among cities in and across developing countries and with support of regional, national, and interregional authorities and actors. It builds on its convening capacity to provide a platform where practitioners can share knowledge, skills, expertise, and resources to meet their development needs and objectives. As a global partnership of organisations fighting urban poverty and supporting cities to deliver sustainable development, Cities Alliance introduces expertise and support from global partners as needed.
Cities Alliance’s peer-to-peer learning approach and networks for urban practitioners convene stakeholders from different backgrounds to exchange experiences on migration and secondary cities and build coalitions to advocate for necessary support at the national and global level. Such networks promote forms of solidarity among municipal leaders in negotiating with national or other supra-local authorities.
