Introduction

The International Municipal Collaboration (IMC) is positioned to support the process of matching cities through Twinning and extending services to all communities of the Global Municipal Diaspora. The IMC is a virtual community with a database of requisite and tangible resources that allows us to connect to each other for the purpose of strengthening our capacity to build communities and municipalities throughout the Diaspora. This is an improvement over the traditional ceremonial sister-city initiatives. A Steering Committee under the United Nations leadership and in conjunction with IMC and the National Conference of Black Mayors (NCBM); will develop a strategic plan that will frame the network for common interests, goals, opportunities and liabilities of the Global Municipal Diaspora.
