Connective Cities
Newsletter - Edition No. 21, June/July 2018

Dear readers,

In recent months, Connective Cities, as a development cooperation project, has been evaluated by an independent team of experts with regard to its results and effects on behalf of BMZ and has been assessed as very successful. Through its dialogue events and practitioners' workshops with cities in Germany and the world regions, Connective Cities has succeeded in networking local practitioners and strengthening the exchange between municipal actors. The advisory services provided are highly accepted, and the international commitment of German cities and municipal companies has been significantly increased.

Connective Cities will continue along this path!

We hope you enjoy reading it,

Your Connective Cities Team
