Annual Report 2004




This year's report stresses the critical need for policies and strategies to promote the positive impacts of urbanisation: '"Instead of debating the contribution of cities to development, more energy needs to be spent on unblocking it". The report also illustrates how by working directly with cities, Alliance funded activities are helping to engage local authorities in the national policy dialogue, as well as encouraging them to be proactive developers of urban infrastructure by mobilising domestic capital.
