  • Founded1997
The UMC group of organizations works towards professionalizing urban management in India and South Asia. Since 1997, they have worked with urban local governments across India, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Nepal, Indonesia and several other countries, successfully delivering results across the spectrum of urban management contexts—from urban water and sanitation, heritage management, urban planning, municipal finance, climate change mitigation and adaptation to urban health system improvements. They are an urban-biased organization with focus on management and  improvement of systems of urban local bodies. They provide technical assistance and support to city governments and facilitate change through peer-to-peer learning processes. With their understanding of adult learning pedagogies, capacity building and training, they work towards building individual and systemic capacities of cities. Though their network of local government associations, they combine the experience of local government practitioners with that of seasoned national and international consultants to design, implement and evaluate municipal development and urban management programs.
