Since 2005, UMC has been working closely with local governments by providing tailor made solutions in professionalising urban management. With our understanding of adult learning pedagogies, capacity building and training, we work towards building individual and systemic capacities of cities.
We have supported local governments across South Asia and Africa by providing technical assistance while facilitating good governance by encouraging peer-to-peer exchanges and providing practitioner-based assistance that resulted in sustainable solutions.

We work collaboratively towards achieving the mission. Our team of experts is a unique mix of sectoral capacities to be able to respond to interdisciplinary development challenges. Same is reflected in our deliverables across the spectrum of WASH, livelihoods, heritage management and institutional restructuring.

What We Do

We engage as a capacity builder, provide technical assistance and do urban focused policy research. Our expertise has been utilised by local governments since 2005 in various sectors.

E-Learning & Research

UMC has been supporting government in many ways and one of the them is by developing video modules for functionaries at different levels. These videos are simple to understand and are not time consuming.
