SDI Annual Report 2012 / 13

SDI is pleased to annouce our 2012/13 Annual Report, a reflection on SDI’s continued growth over the past year. 

This report includes an executive summary from the SDI Secretariat, a discussion and proposal of A People’s Urban Agenda, including milestones for post-MDG sustainable urban development. We also take a close look at the citywide impact of SDI’s projects and processes, exploring work done around community savings for urban change, citywide solutions to water and sanitation, and refining informal settlement mapping, profiling, and household enumeration processes. In relation to these important milestones, the report includes a discussion of the various engagements that have lead to important partnerships with governments at the city and national level, multi and bi-lateral aid agencies, private sector and other key actors in the urban development sector. 

As Sheela Patel, chair of the SDI Board, states, “This report is a landmark exploration of both the successes and fruitful failures on our road of experimentation for building voice, influence and knowledge of, by, and for the poor in our cities.”
