Cities Development Initiative for Asia (CDIA)
Asian Development Bank (ADB)
CDIA is a multi-donor trust fund managed by the Asian Development Bank (ADB). It works closely with secondary cities in Asia and the Pacific to address gaps in infrastructure development and financing. It uses a demand-driven approach to support infrastructure projects that emphasize poverty reduction, environmental improvement, climate change mitigation or adaptation, and good governance. To facilitate these initiatives at the city level, CDIA provides a range of international and domestic expertise that can include, among others, support for project preparation studies for high priority infrastructure investment projects.
