PROMotion of Inclusive, Sustainable growth and diversity to strengthen Local Governments

About.

The PROMISE project is being implemented by ICLEI South Asia in association with Administrative Staff College of India (ASCI) with support from European Union in four project cities. It aims to improve the capacity of Urban Local Governments to perform as development actors for improving local quality of life in an inclusive manner in their respective cities. The project supports local authorities/governments to create, enable and institutionalize equitable and inclusive governance mechanisms, with an aim to support development of smart and sustainable growth in cities. The activities being undertaken in the project also help to enhance last mile connectivity and cater to the needs of all the citizens irrespective of their religion, age and income group hence promoting inclusive development.

Through the project, efforts have been done to assist and build the capacities of the local government to better leverage the opportunities available under national programs such as Smart City Mission, AMRUT, HRIDAY, Housing for all and Swachh Bharat Mission through well-defined criteria for project evaluation and implementation. The opportunities from the above are leveraged through convergence, developing synergies in order to have better services and facilities resulting in improved quality of life. The project was initiated in early 2016 and is scheduled to close by early 2019
