Abstract:

Annotation

Also available in Spanish Elementos de la GestiAn Urbana / (ISBN 0-8213-2457-8) / Stock No. 12457 / $6.95 / Price code 006 This handy management tool explains how urban government agencies can manage growth effectively. It shows how to fund urban services and monitor financing. It also points out ways by which municipal institutions can deliver better services with such methods as evaluation of the work of urban government agencies. Case studies of the performance of municipal governments come from cities in Brazil, India, Malaysia, Mexico, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. A study of the Philippines evaluates municipal development projects funded by the World Bank. The author discusses how to improve city development and municipal planning, and recommends ways of managing urban services, whether privately or publicly owned. Politics have a crucial effect on urban management. The study discusses designation of executive positions, timing of elections, and gauging political risks. Relations between local agencies and central governments also are surveyed. The paper reviews ways to create an environment that instills pride in performing services well.
