    Works Department,Govt. of Uttarakhand, India
    workshops of this nature are very useful as it provides us participants with an opportunity to
    see development that has occurred in these countries over the years, all the result of political will
    which is greatly lacking in India. Such exposure is important and we are greatly obliged to
    CBN International for providing our technocrats this opportunity… . We as Indians do possess the
    intelligence but practically we are unable to apply any of these concepts to our needs.
    All the good practices that we have seen during this programme may not be adoptable but with
    necessary adjustments we can definitely make them work…”

    The programme is a very good, educational and mind opener. I think it should be broadened
    to include public sector managers. To me it is a very good programme especially for us in Africa.

    Mr. Vidya Nand Garg, IAS, Housing Commissioner,
    UP Housing Board, INDIA
    the programme provided an all time high opportunity for capacity building for managers
    and administrators dealing with urban development. The programme highlighted the important fact
    that for the success of any public private partnership, there has to be a will
    to levy user charges by the authorities and a willingness to pay user charges by the users…

    Please, encourage countries to change delegations for broad capacitation. Those that have been
    empowered should goback & practice what they have learnt.
