WACAP's vision of decentralized cooperation emphasizes strengthening the three interdependent aspects of sustainable development in the urban context - the economic, the environmental and the social dimensions. The Vision emphasizes shared responsibility among government, private sector, academia and civil society.


WACAP's strategy to implement this vision is two-fold:

  • To reinforce the capacity of cities to improve public service delivery through evidence-based best practice solutions and through partnerships with other cities.

  • To design, pilot, upscale and advocate for innovative financing solutions, through - for example - decentralized and triangular cooperation and creative public private partnerships.
