Infrastructure and Cities for Economic Development

DFID is providing £33.5 million to the Infrastructure and Cities for Economic Development (ICED) programme over five years, from March 2015 to July 2020 to improve the enabling environment for sustainable, inclusive growth-enhancing infrastructure service delivery in DFID and to harness the benefits of cities for sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction in DFID focus countries. CoST was one of the programmes selected to implement ICED programme activities, receiving funding to do so.

DFID’s annual reviews of ICED and its programmes can be found here.
