The Asian Development Bank (ADB) publication City Development Strategies to Reduce Poverty sets out the results of a technical assistance that developed and introduced the concepts and techniques for preparing City Development Strategies (CDS) and Cities Without Slums (CWS) programmes.

It includes case studies that suggest that, for cities to benefit from their comparative advantages, they must become more efficient, govern well, and establish coherent poverty reduction programmes.

The book comes with a CD-ROM containing case studies, and CDS and CWS guidelines.
