Over the past 21 years, Cities Alliance has supported cities to deliver sustainable development. Cities Alliance results highlight our longstanding track record of addressing urban poverty and improving the living conditions and resilience of the urban poor.
Since 1999, Cities Alliance has engaged with national and city governments to improve governance, citywide service delivery and increased resilience through the improved and inclusive management of urbanisation, including 176 City Development Strategies.
Cities Alliance works with civil society, governments, and partners to empower urban poor communities and facilitate the active participation of women and girls, and has improved the wellbeing, health and livelihoods of the urban poor through direct improvements in access to basic services.
Cities Alliance supports the long-term institutional capacity of its partners and has engaged national and local authorities, urban institutions and associations, civil society, universities, and SMEs in institutional strengthening. Cities Alliance catalyses urban transformation processes, incubates new thinking and new partnerships among urban development actors.
