Programs & Projects

The League offers and implements a wide range of urban development programs to its member-cities. The LCP has been engaging funding agencies, national government offices, the civil society partners, business/private sector, and the academe in the implementation of noteworthy programs and projects.


An added-value in the LCP-initiated programs and projects is its point of entry – through the local chief executives. The city mayors’ full support enables the program implementation to work efficiently at the city level. This includes among others the sustainability mechanisms both in local policy and practice through integration into the local development agenda and provision of budget.
