Cities Alliance Annual Meeting Documentation Part 2

18 October 2012

Dear Consultative Group Members,


As promised, please find attached the Evaluation on the Location and Hosting of the Cities Alliance Secretariat, which will be the main business item for our forthcoming meeting. As you will appreciate, this is a very important issue for the CG to discuss, and the sole purpose of the attached  report, which was commissioned in response to a resolution of EXCO, is to help the CG come to a clear decision.


You will note that we have classified the report as Strictly Confidential, in terms of the policies governing the Cities Alliance (WB AMS Policy 612A). Please take note of the disclaimer on the front page, which states the following:

Note / Disclaimer:


This document has a restricted distribution and may be used by recipients only in the performance of their official duties. Its contents may not otherwise be disclosed without Cities Alliance Secretariat authorization. 


We would be very grateful if our CG members would follow this restriction.


Additional documentation.


Attached please also find the  Financial and Budget Report for FY2012-2013. We are still incorporating additional data and, therefore, the  Portfolio Analysis and Grant Processing Statistical Summary will be handed out at the meeting.


Please note that, as in previous years, Meeting Binders will be provided for EXCO members only.


For your convenience, all meeting documents are also posted on the Cities Alliance website under the Members Section. Please create a personal login to access the page.



If you have not already done so, kindly please confirm your participation to Sid Henderson and make your hotel reservations at the Hilton Hanoi Opera Hotel, promotion code: GWORB at a rate of USD140/night (tax not included).
