dc.description.abstractThe first Asian Mayors' Forum was held in Cebu in the Philippines in December 1998. It was a gathering of 10 mayors and had three sponsors, namely, the ADB Institute, ADB, and the Municipal Council of Cebu. At this Asian Mayors' Forum in Colombo 73 participants, representing ten countries, 31 cities, and over 100 million residents attended. This Forum was sponsored by the Asian Development Bank Institute, the Asian Development Bank, Colombo Municipal Council, Colombo Plan Secretariat, GTZ, Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, U S Agency for International Development-RUDO, U S Asia Environmental Partnership Program, and Urban Management Programme (UNDP/UNCHS). The increased participation of city leaders and sponsors in the Colombo Forum was indicative of the growing need for exchange of information and experiences on urban governance and a search for a mechanism for fostering networking among cities in Asia. Thus, from Cebu to Colombo, the Asian Mayors Forum has clearly established itself as a platform for interaction among city leaders of Asia.
