Cities Alliance 2010 Annual Report

The 2010 Annual Report focuses on the transition process undertaken by the Cities Alliance over the course of the year, culminating in the adoption of a new business model that is better aligned with the Alliance’s strategic goal of working as a global partnership for urban poverty reduction and the promotion of the role of cities in sustainable development.
Despite this transition, the Cities Alliance approved US$16 million in grants for project activities in 2010, the highest amount since 2006. A total of 38 projects were approved, with an increasing number reflecting the Alliance’s shift towards longer term, programmatic commitments that raise the profile of cities and slums and support transformation.
