Annual Report 2006
The Cities Alliance 2006 Annual Report focuses on the poverty of the urban environment. It argues, contrary to the conventional wisdom, that cities are threats to both global and local environment, urban areas may actually proffer the best hope for a sustainable environmental future. However, both developing country cities, and their development partners, need to place the urban environment high on their respective agendas, and target the linkages between urban poverty, urban environment degradation and poor policy frameworks.
A first in the tradition of CA Annual Reports is the Members' Reports pages, presented in a separate section in the middle of the report.
