The year 2020 marks the midway point of the implementation of CDIA’s Strategy 2018-2022. The strategy identifies the objectives and strategies for CDIA as it continues to work with cities in Asia and the Pacific, 13 years after it was established.
According to the Strategy, CDIA’s main purpose to assist cities in developing sustainable and bankable infrastructure projects and liaising with funders remains valid. Its overall model is deemed successful based on the feedback from cities it has worked with, and the Midterm Review CDIA has conducted in 2015.
Between 2018-2022, CDIA will focus on improving its responsiveness to the needs of cities as well as financing agencies, and stimulating innovation so that the prepared projects can serve as best practices for other cities in the region.
Towards this, CDIA has implemented key innovative measures, such as:
CDIA’s strategy fosters partnership with cities, funders, and national and regional partner organizations; and endeavors to broaden CDIA’s donor base particularly those from Asia.
CDIA will update its strategy in the next few months in light of recent developments and to outline its approach in helping cities better prepare and manage future pandemics and health emergencies.
