The Charter Cities Institute

The Charter Cities Institute (CCI) is a non-profit institution located in Washington DC that aims to empower new cities with better governance to stimulate investments, create jobs and ultimately, lift tens of millions of people out of poverty.


Our development model is premised on the idea of fostering the development of charter cities, that is, cities with special jurisdiction concerning legal, administrative, and regulatory autonomy, and developed through a PPP agreement.
