3. The Influence of AUICK - Workshop Action Plan Implementation in the AUICK Associate Cities, 2005 – 2008

Chapter 3.1 explains the workshop Action Plan system, and the first section of each of chapters 3.2 to 3.9 outline how each workshop provided information to participants through the presentations, site visits and seminars. The second sections of chapters 3.2 to 3.9 detail the aims and implementation progress of every workshop Action Plan. Participants completed and sent Action Plan Progress Reports to AUICK between 2006 and 2009 (see Figure 1), and communicated implementation progress to AUICK through correspondence, monitoring meetings , and a follow-up workshop conducted in 2009 . In Chapter 3, the Action Plans are each graded as to their implementation status. Relevant information is also recorded in Newsletters published by AUICK . 

Chapter 3.1 will describe the AUICK Workshop Action Plan System, and Chapters 3.2 to 3.9 outline the eight workshops held between 2005 and 2008, and the aims and implementation progress of each Action Plan made at those workshops, at the time of this study’s writing. The plans consist of specific steps to improve citizen welfare in the AACs, based on the lessons learned at the AUICK workshops conducted in Kobe. Workshop themes include HIV/AIDS; primary education; waste management and urban greening; welfare of aged citizens; water and sanitation; and maternal and child health care in natural disasters. The participating officials at the workshops were usually heads or deputy heads of their city government departments relevant to the themes of the workshops.
