PCI announced two new Commitments to Action at the 2014 Annual Meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative to further our work and impact around the world. Building upon the success of our Women Empowered (WE) Initiative, PCI commits to equip an additional 250,000 women with the tools, training, and opportunities they need to improve their lives and communities. This commitment couples an ambitious strategy with a rigorous measurement tool to evaluate success—PCI’s Lives Changed Indices (LCI). Our second commitment will transform urban slums into resilient neighborhoods by extending low cost housing and construction loans to vulnerable urban populations and pioneering public private partnerships to accomplish this. PCI will convene a wide array of local partners in high-risk informal urban centers in three countries to develop strategies to transform these areas into safer, healthier, more resilient neighborhoods.
The Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) convenes leaders to turn ideas into action. CGI Commitments to Action represent bold new ways that CGI members address global challenges—implemented through new methods of partnership and designed to maximize impact. Commitments can be small or large, global or local. No matter the size or scope, commitments help CGI members translate practical goals into meaningful and measurable results.
