Technical Cooperation among Cities of Developing Countries (TCDC)
An innovative part of CITYNET's activities is its TCDC (Technical Cooperation among Cities of Developing Countries) Programme. Within this framework, CITYNET enables technical exchanges between cities and NGOs on urban issues. Members learn from each other's successes and failures and are able to fine-tune their own urban development initiatives.
The unique feature of this activity is that it promotes exchanges between local governments and NGOs, which have deep knowledge and expertise in their own focus area. These exchanges are facilitated by the CITYNET Secretariat on request from members, and therefore, have a high element of relevance to the concerned cities/NGOs. Over the years, the TCDC Programme has evolved into a flagship activity for CITYNET.
