Annual Report 2008
Key highlights in this year’s report include: The growth in the number of client or country executed projects or activities, in line with the Cities Alliance new Medium Term Strategy which promotes city and country ownership of projects. Among the current active or newly approved projects, 13 percent are executed by local authority and nearly 40 percent more by a country partner. This is in contrast with the profile of grant funding during the first four years of the Alliance’s launch (FY 00 – 03), when only seven percent of projects were executed by a local authority and an additional 15% by a country client. Today, approximately half of Cities Alliance projects are already under country execution.
