In this publication, GIZ highlights how cities’ resources can be used efficiently to harness the potential for sustainable development. Which guiding principles does GIZ follow in its international cooperation for sustainable urban development? How does GIZ devise a sound basis for its projects? What directly applicable know-how and what specific urban governance concepts does GIZ have to offer? And how can it contribute to building local capacities in cities and metropolitan regions? We will answer these questions in this brochure.
Our aim is to achieve well-governed and managed cities, which create and maintain the necessary structures and guarantee their inhabitants social security, environmental sustainability and political participation. These cities can then set an example for others in the country as places where not only the economy does well, but intellectual and cultural life also prospers. Th ese cities become places that people can call home.
