Millennium Cities is a project run by the Earth Institute at Columbia University. It's mission is to help underdeveloped sub-Saharan cities address basic social needs - health care, education, water, etc. - while working to encourage investment in the private sector. As they describe themselves, "MCI helps selected, under-resourced urban centers become viable, sustainable “Millennium Cities” — each with distinct livelihood opportunities, improved access to public services and links with the countryside and international markets. MCI accomplishes this through a combination of research and policy analysis, and by working with local, domestic and international partners to stimulate economic and social development."
