About

The Millennium Cities Initiative (MCI), a project of the Earth Institute at Columbia University, works with underserved cities in sub-Saharan Africa to help them achieve the Millennium Development Goals.

Millennium Cities Initiative cover
Mission The Millennium Cities Initiative’s core mission is to support by 2015 the achievement in underserved urban settings of the Millennium Development Goals(MDGs), eight fundamental and quantifiable targets aimed at halving extreme poverty and creating the conditions for sustainable economic and social development. MCI works with selected impoverished cities across sub-Saharan Africa to identify critical gaps in realizing the MDGs and to seek appropriate partners to fill these missing links. MCI partnerships include investors, philanthropists and entrepreneurs; governments and multi-lateral agencies; and local organizations and volunteers, all of whom join MCI in the belief that, for the first time, our generation has the opportunity to complete an urban transformation across Africa and beyond.
