Cities Alliance - Cities Without Slums

The Cities Alliance was launched in 1999 with initial support from the World Bank and UN-Habitat. Alliance partners have joined forces to expand the level of resources reaching the urban poor, by improving the coherence of effort among on-going urban programmes, and by more directly linking grant-funded urban development cooperation with investment follow-up. Alliance committed to improve the living conditions of the urban poor through promoting City Development Strategies (CDS) and city-wide and nation-wide slum upgrading.
