Cities Alliance Annual Report 2018
This report documents the Cities Alliance's work programme for the calendar year 2018.
The results highlighted in the report demonstrate that the Cities Alliance's Strategic Plan 2018-2021 provides a strong platform that allows the partnership to contribute to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Progress can already be seen in strengthening Cities Alliance’s activities in both the country and global windows and scaling up operations on the ground.
Country Programmes in Liberia and Tunisia are showing promising initial results, including greater support for cities in implementing the global agendas, the development of inclusive governance and policy approaches, infrastructure projects to improve access to basic services, leveraging additional funding, and strengthening partnerships across the board.
The Joint Work Programmes (JWPs) on Equitable Economic Growth in Cities, City Resilience, Cities and the Global Agendas, and the new Cities and Migration programme are providing knowledge and support to help cities determine how they can play a role in implementing the global agendas in a way that emphasises gender equality, resilience, and equitable economic growth for all.
