Updated CDIA Strategy and Action Plan for Pro-poor Urban Infrastructure Development Now Available
July 22, 2016
The long-term aim of CDIA is to contribute to the promotion of sustainable and pro-poor urban development, leading to improved environmental and living conditions for all in medium-sized Asian cities. In line with this, CDIA has recently updated and made available online its “Strategy and Action Plan for Pro-poor Urban Infrastructure Development.”
The objective of the strategy is to strengthen CDIA processes and activities to ensure that projects are developed in a maximally inclusive manner, and that a significant portion of CDIA project components are inclusive and pro-poor.
With clear focus on inclusive urban development, CDIA can make a significant impact across all poverty dimensions through the promotion of investment in pro-poor urban infrastructure, being planned and implemented in an inclusive and consultative manner.
CDIA’s strategy for pro-poor urban infrastructure development focuses on five areas:
- Develop capacity for pro-poor development;
- Strengthen internal CDIA processes;
- Improve processes for direct interventions (investment planning and programming and PFS)
- Improve monitoring and evaluation framework; and
- Find modalities for linking pro-poor projects to finance.
