Dear CDIA Partners,
As 2018 comes to a close, allow us to express our gratitude to all those we have had the honor to work with in the past 11 years. Having been able to support 95 cities in 19 countries in preparing sustainable infrastructure projects is a milestone we couldn’t have achieved without your cooperation.
In this newsletter, we highlight some of our progress and accomplishments with our partners. At the same time, we wish to inform that the engagement of GIZ as one of CDIA’s implementers will end this month and CDIA will be fully recognized as an ADB-managed Trust Fund beginning 2019. We are confident that this change in governance will also bring great opportunities; and guided by our Strategy 2018-2022, we shall endeavor to work more closely with cities and financing agencies, and stimulate innovation to improve our contributions to key development impacts.
We also take this opportunity to wish all our partners and their families a joyous holiday season.
On behalf of CDIA,
CDIA Program Coordinator
CDIA Program Manager
