Sustainable Urban Development MDTF - Progress Report 2015

    The Multi-Donor Trust Fund for Sustainable Urban Development (MDTF SUD) finances global, national and regional initiatives through analytical work for project development, institutional strengthening and knowledge partnerships on urban poverty and sustainable urban development. It is a partnership of the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), the UK Department for International Development, the Government of Norway and the World Bank.


    Since its establishment, the MDTF SUD has been the main source of external support for World Bank urban work. This Progress Review covers the activities and results of that work from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015, including Urbanization Reviews that are influencing urban policies around the world and spawning follow-up investments; cutting-edge spatial data analysis; and valuable research that is enriching the World Bank’s knowledge portfolio.
