Dear LEDNA members,
I am currently working with the World Bank in Ethiopia and the Addis Ababa City Government on a benchmarking exercise for the city towards improving its competitiveness and economic growth prospects.
I would be very interested to hear from any of you who have conducted similar excercises for your cities and have any documents / experiences to share.
If anyone can share other African city benchmarking exercises or city specific sources of data in Africa that would be great.
I am also looking for case studies of success where cities achieved higher levels of competitiveness through effective government policies, so if members have suggestions on this that would also be great.
Hope to hear from some of you who have experience with this kind of excercise.
