Download Assessing the Institutional Environment of Local Governments in Africa, 3rd Edition

The City Enabling Environment (CEE) initiative provides a framework for cities and countries to relate to each other and take action to create an environment conducive to sustainable urban development. It helps identify the challenges countries face in achieving this goal and facilitates discussion among stakeholders of the reforms needed to meet them. The initiative also helps guide international technical and financial partners in defining their support.

The 2018 edition is a follow-up to the 2012 and 2015 editions of the report. It updates the country sheets created in 2015 and analyses the development of the institutional environment for cities and subnational governments from 2012 to 2018, and from 2015 to 2018. It specifically measures the change in latitude provided to cities and subnational governments.

The CEE Ratings report is a joint undertaking between Cities Alliance and the United Cities and Local Governments of Africa UCLG Africa).

The publication is available in English and French.
