The LCP offers and implements 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.
Buy-in from the other local chief executives and city-to-city mentoring remain important processes in the project implementation. Critical and collaborative support from the other local officials, city department heads, and stakeholders also complement the program strength. The LCP Secretariat, often as the program and project management office, exercises ownership and further capacitates its technical and administrative staff.
