On September 14-16, MedCities participated in the Conference “Promoting the role of cities in Africa: Africa Strategy Workshop” organised by Cities Alliance in Accra (Ghana).

The conference gathered together political representatives, practitioners and researchers from different African countries in which Cities Alliance implement their actions through their Country Programs. MedCities participated as partner in the Tunisia Country Program, approved by the Cities Alliance Management Board last 1st September.

Cities Alliance is a multi-stakeholders platform whose objective is to promote urban sustainable development in partnership with other actors. MedCities has participated jointly in the organisation of events and implementation of projects, especially in the domain of City Development Strategies. The organisation of the Conference of Urban Development Strategies in the Mediterranean, was a milestone that marked the elaboration of such initiatives in the region. The USUDS Project was somehow a consequence of this partnership.

In 2017, MedCities and Cities Alliance will continue their cooperation through the implementation of new City Development Strategies in Tunisia, in a joint component within Cities Alliance Tunisia Country program, together with other partners such as UNDP, GIZ and CILG-VNG.
