ICMA has an agreement with the CEPT Research & Development Foundation (CRDF) to enhance the capacity of local government managers, supervisors, and administrators, as well as students, to better manage cities in India. The foundation takes its name from CEPT University, based in Ahmedabad, in Gujarat state.
ICMA conducted a stakeholder analysis and an assessment of training needs, outlined a 12-module training curriculum, and piloted a module on change management. ICMA leads the delivery of training to students and current practitioners working in Indian local governments.
The long-term goal is to identify CEPT faculty members and other Indian nationals who have the interest and ability to deliver the training at the university and in other locations in the country to build local capacity in city management.
