Partnerships in China's Urban Development Agenda
July 3, 2012
In recent decades, the rise of mega-cities across Asia has become a phenomenon. The speed and scale of China’s urbanization, however, is unprecedented in human history. CDIA is one of the multilateral donor agencies that have been contributing in the promotion of sustainable urban development in China.
Recently, the European Union signed the Joint Declaration with China on “EU-China Partnership on Urbanisation”, which will add more value and resources to this venture in the global agenda. Several subjects that this Partnership will highlight are in line with CDIA’s goals and current effort in China. For instance, the services that CDIA provides to its client cities, e.g. City Infrastructure Investment Programming & Prioritization Toolkit, Pre-Feasibility Study, Public-Private Partnership guideline, etc. overlap with the Partnership’s subject of “Strategies and Policies Relevant to the Development of Urbanisation”, “Urban Infrastructure Investment and Financing Mechanisms” and “Urban Governance”.
CDIA China actively seeks for possible collaboration with the European Delegation in China to contribute to a sustainable urban development in China.
