Urban governance - 04.08.2014

UCLG and UN Habitat invite you to participate in a survey on urban governance
According to the World Bank, 180 000 people come to live in cities everyday worldwide. By 2050, 84% of the world population is expected to live in urban areas. As the world becomes increasingly urbanised, urban governance and decentralisation are placed at the heart of the debates on the future international development agenda.
This is why our global organisation, UCLG, in collaboration with UN Habitat and the research centre LSE Cities, launched a survey to assess the state of urban governance worldwide, by pursuing 3 main objectives:
  1. Increase the still very limited amount of available data on urban governance;
  2. Establish a global platform between municipalities at the international level, to improve the efficiency of the exchange of good practices;
  3. Explore innovative ways to map urban governance and to communicate with the public
Your inputs will also contribute to UCLG’s 4th Global Report in Decentralisation and Local democracy and be consulted in the framework of the debates on the elaboration of the post-2015 development agenda.
The preliminary results of this survey will be presented at the occasion of Urban Age conference in Delhi (India) on 14-15 November 2014.
For more information, you can visit the website of ULCG’s Decentralisation and Local Self-Government Committee or contact LSE Cities.
