Investing in Asia’s Urban Future

We work with medium-sized Asian cities and other partners in shaping an inclusive, livable and sustainable future for Asia.

We help bridge infrastructure–financing gap.

We help identify and develop infrastructure investment projects and link them with potential financiers

We use a demand-driven approach.

We provide solutions that are responsive to the development needs of each city we work with.

We strive for impact and sustainability.

By providing infrastructure project preparation and capacity development support, we hope to create positive and lasting contribution to poverty alleviation, environmental improvement, climate change adaptation or mitigation, and governance.
