CDIA Program Structure and Governance
The CDIA Programme structure features a two-tiered presence in the Asian region and a more limited, ad-hoc project presence in participating cities and countries. This is grounded in the establishment of a Program Steering Committee (PRC) to oversee strategic direction of the program which receive input from an Advisory Committee and Stakeholder Forum. The Core Management Team (CMT) operates as the Secretariat to the PRC and undertakes much of the day-to-day operations in the region and at the city/ country level. The CMT works with providers of technical assistance/ financing at the regional level as well as consulting teams at the city level.

The PRC comprises representatives of the major contributors/shareholders to CDIA who are voting members of the PRC and other stakeholders’ representatives.
