The  areas  of  training  will  include,  but  will  not  be limited to, the following subjects:

·         Urban infrastructure project prioritization and programming;

·         Urban infrastructure finance;

·         Urban infrastructure services contributing to urban sustainability (environment, social development, economic development);

·         Marketing of infrastructure investment projects to potential financiers;

·         Using public private partnership (PPP) arrangements for infrastructure investments;

·         Using pre-feasibility studies to help bridge the gap between development plans and project implementation.

We encourage your application and your distribution of this material to suitable cities in your network. The ideal application is  composed of  a  team  of  three  Senior  Executives  from  the city authority being responsible for urban planning and development issues.  Successful applicants  will  receive hospitality terms including air ticket, accommodation, training fees, etc.
