The challenge of urban government policies and practices (Inglês)

The World Bank Institute (WBI) has responded to the challenges of urban development and city management by launching a number of important initiatives. Chief among these is the program on Urban Challenges of the 21st Century, under which the Institute developed a number of courses on urban and city management that have been conducted worldwide. These courses were designed in the context of a new urban strategy in the World Bank. The strategy recognizes that cities are crucial in efforts to address poverty and developmental issues, but acknowledges that this potential will not be realized unless cities are livable, competitive, well-governed and managed, and bankable--all themes that are explored in this book. This book results from the first such course, which was held in Toronto, Canada, in May 1999. The book's chapters correspond to the course's ten modules on such topics as globalization and city management, city strategy and local governance, urban financial management, private sector participation in infrastructure provision, urban environmental management, and urban poverty reduction.
