A recognition of the importance of equitable economic growth (EEG), and the need to understand how EEG can be effectively promoted in secondary cities, led to the establishment of Cities Alliance’s Joint Work Programme (JWP) on EEG in cities.

A trademark component of the JWP-EEG programme has been the Campaign Cities Initiative (2016–2020). This initiative began by creating local partnerships in eight secondary cities in Bangladesh, Uganda, Ghana, and Kenya. For each city, a diagnostic assessment of constraints to EEG was produced, resulting in the selection of a particular public good or service in the city that should be prioritised.
