To meet our goals, much of the needed investments in electricity, schools, transportation, telecommunications, housing, water, and sanitation infrastructure will have to take place in cities. Most countries are not investing enough to meet these needs. Bridging this massive financing gap is essential to achieving our core development objectives and meeting the aspirations of the Sustainable Development Goals, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, the Paris Agreement, and New Urban Agenda.
USAID provides technical assistance and services to help cities and towns access and mobilize greater financial resources—both private capital and domestic resources—to support service delivery across a range of sectors. Learn more about our role.
