    The Millennium Cities Initiative (MCI) was established to help selected, under-resourced municipalities across sub-Saharan Africa eradicate searing urban poverty and attain the MDGs. Their ultimate goal is to achieve an urban transformation across Africa and beyond.

    MP has worked with municipalities to improve the legal environment, economic climate, and the infrastructure for those towns that are the most crucial regional capitals of the Millennium Villages so that they become poles for economic development capable of attracting direct local or foreign investments and to focus on the Millennium Villages nearby.
