CityLinks projects provide assistance to municipal and national governments that face challenges related to climate change, water and sanitation, and food security. A key feature of CityLinks is partnerships between cities that seek to address these challenges and cities that can share their own successful approaches. CityLinks partnerships have a three-fold purpose, addressing interrelated technical areas that are important in today’s rapidly urbanizing world: to improve climate-related governance and systems in targeted urban areas; to increase resilience of vulnerable communities in cities of Feed the Future focus countries; and to improve water supply and sanitation access in Global Health Initiative countries.
