Adapting Governance for a National Urban Policy Agenda

This chapter discusses governance strategies for adopting a national urban policy agenda. The chapter starts by assessing the country’s current governance and planning framework and pointing out particular areas of opportunity. The chapter focuses on ways of enhancing co-ordination across levels of government and strengthening inter-municipal co-ordination within urban functional areas. The chapter also makes recommendations on how to improve inter-ministry coherence and integration at the central level and strengthen the role of intermediate levels of government. The chapter ends by looking at urban fiscal capacity by describing the system’s main features and making recommendations on financing infrastructure, using property taxes for business development and addressing inequality by improving public service provision.
