    • Together we implement and manage projects and programmes in developing countries and emerging economies around the world. We are committed to support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and to provide our expertise to help improving lives of people in need.
    • To promote sustainable economic development, we work with a large number of International Financial Institutions (IFIs) and donor agencies such as the World Bank, the Asian and African Development Banks, the European Commission and its various organisations (e.g. EBRD, EIB), UN agencies, the German Government and the UK Department for International Development (DFID).

Due to their sheer growing number, it is systems of secondary cities, such as cities with fewer than one million inhabitants, that will have a greater influence upon the future economic development of nations and larger geographic regions.
    • Globally, there are more than 2,400 cities in the world with populations between 150,000 and 5 million which could be loosely described as secondary cities. Nearly two thirds of these are located in Africa and Asia. Secondary cities range in form and size from 150,000 to 5 million people and perform a wide range of functions in national and international systems of cities.
    • Secondary cities will play an important role as catalysts and secondary hubs in facilitating the localised production, transportation, transformation, or transfer of goods, people, trade, information, and services between sub-national, metropolitan, national, regional, and global systems of cities. They will likely demonstrate the presence of industry agglomeration and clusters; a system of well-developed, localised supply chains and networks; a diversified economic and employment base; and a broad housing mix.
