URB-AL is a horizontal programme of decentralised co-operation of the European Commission that brings together towns and regions in Europe and Latin America. The main objective of the programme is to contribute to the improvement of socio-economic conditions and the quality of life of the population, while developing a direct, long-lasting association between cities in both continents.
One general goal in the period from 2000 until 2006 was the improvement of the socio-economic conditions and the quality of life of the population as well as the appropriate development of the urban centers. From meetings in Europe and Latin America as well as the exchange and transfer of know-how and experiences a direct and durable connection between the local participants in the thematic networks is to result.

Within the framework of the development co-operation of the European Community, the financing instrument DCI (Development Co-operation Instrument) contributes amongst others to the achievement of the following goals:
• Poverty reduction in the context of sustainable development - including environmental, economic, social and political aspects
• health and other objectives defined in the United Nations Millenium Development Goals.
A focus of this framework is to co-finance initiatives proposed and/or carried out by non-State actors and local authorities originating from the European Community or partner countries.
