Annual Update 2018 VNG International


Sustainable and

Resilient Cities

and Communities

by strengthening

local government

Imagine what it means to be a councillor or city manager, facing the multiple and unprecedented challenges that come with the rapid urbanization of today and the coming years and decades. The quality of their decisions and work has an enormous impact, now and for future generations. How to mitigate climate change, how to deal with the rapid population growth both from within and from outside the current city, how to assure that sufficient employment is created for men, women and young people, and that every citizen feels safe? We support local politicians and staff, by providing access to knowledge and experience of peers, by training and coaching, often in multi-annual projects. We also have a strong record in supporting local governments in the field of disaster preparedness and reconstruction.
