Additionally, the guide outlines how cities can gain support from international financial institutions, as well as credit enhancements and other leveraging tools. The concepts presented are intended to help mid-size cities and local governments better navigate the complex world of infrastructure financing and respond more effectively to the basic infrastructure service needs of their citizens and businesses.
