All the news from around CDIA
The approved CDIA Strategy and Business Plan 2013-2017 was recently launched at CDIA’s 5th Anniversary Celebration on November 16, 2012, held at ADB Headquarters Manila, Philippines. The Launch was presided over by Bernhard Dohle, Incoming Program Coordinator GIZ-CDIA together with Bindu Lohani, Vice President, KMSD, ADB and Ralph Timmermann, Counsellor and Deputy Head of Mission, German Embassy, Manila. The closing remarks was given by Bindu Lohani, Vice President, KMSD, ADB.
The CDIA Strategy and Business Plan 2013–2017 builds upon the experience gained in the last 5 years (since inception in October 2007) of CDIA operations, incorporates input from an external midterm review mission (October 2011), and benefits from the reflections of CDIA’s Program Review Committee on this experience. It presents the medium-term strategic operational direction for CDIA’s next phase of activities by elaborating and prioritizing strategic choices, and proposes how CDIA can continue to move forward during the next 5 years.
The overall objectives of CDIA remain valid with its focus to support cities to bridge their planning investment gap through preparing and structuring their urban infrastructure investment projects. However, the challenge for the S&BP 2013–2017 is to carry out CDIA’s defined mission more effectively, in recognition of evolving conditions.
