CDIA Book Describes Work on Capacity Development and Contributions to Development Goals
December 10, 2018
At the recent CDIA event on the “11 Years of Co-management in Preparing Sustainable Infrastructure Projects with Cities,” a new CDIA book was unveiled, which describes its efforts in building the capacity of its partner cities; and contributing to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and key development impacts.
Bridging Cities, People and Sustainable Development showcases the work of CDIA in the past 11 years. For the first time, CDIA has described in detail how it contributes to sustainable development goals (SDGs), particularly in creating sustainable cities and communities.
This book also provides an insight into our approaches, strategies and results as we endeavor to contribute to at least two of the following development impacts: poverty reduction and inclusiveness, environmental improvement, climate change mitigation or adaptation, and good governance.
For the first time as well, the book showcases the results of our capacity development work through the 116 training activities we have conducted over time. Additionally, it highlights our collaboration with Asia-Pacific cities, national and regional partner organizations, and other relevant partners in recognition of their valuable partnership, which led CDIA to where it is now. Finally, the book provides our reflection on our 11 years of work, and describes our way forward as we fully transition to an ADB-managed Trust Fund.
