The Millennium Cities Initiative (MCI) - The Earth Institute at Columbia Universit

The Millennium Cities Initiative is a project of The Earth Institute at Columbia University, directed by Professor Jeffrey D. Sachs.  It was established in early 2006 to help sub-Saharan African cities achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).  As part of this effort, MCI helps the Cities to create employment, stimulate enterprise development and foster economic growth, especially by stimulating domestic and foreign investment, to eradicate extreme poverty – the first and most fundamental MDG.

Investment promotion is particularly important for cities other than capital cities, as investors in manufacturing and services often locate primarily in a country’s capital city. Hence, commercially viable investment opportunities need to be identified at the city level and in surrounding areas and brought to the attention of investors elsewhere in the country, in the region and internationally – and investors need to be assisted when they establish themselves. 

The special purpose of the Millennium Cities Day in London is to bring to the attention of investors commercially viable investment opportunities and inform about the investment environment in the following cities/countries: Kumasi, Ghana; Blantyre, Malawi; Kisumu, Kenya; and Akure, Nigeria.  A delegation from Mekelle, Ethiopia also attended the meeting.

The mayors and ministers from each city/country showcased investment opportunities in important sectors of interest to international investors, such as agriculture, agro-processing, tourism, construction or light manufacturing, and shared thoughts and ideas on such areas of common concern as the investment environment, attraction and facilitation of investors.
