Managing cities and providing housing, essential infra- structure and public services in an era of great pressures on municipal resources are challenging domestic issues in all parts of the world. Increasingly, city administrators and local government authorities in developing countries and western industrial nations are seeking to share experiences and exchange information in a search for solutions. This highly informative volume attempts to meet this critical need and to aid development cooperation among municipalities. Strengthening Urban Management presents the practical problems and approaches to the provision of housing, trans- portation, and the mobilization of the requisite finance and manpower for local government in contrasting urban situ- ations. It draws upon selected papers contributed to inter- national meetings and world congresses sponsored by the International Union of Local Authorities, The Hague, Netherlands. Subject areas are illustrated in city examples given by mayors, administrators and planners from Lusaka, Harare, Nairobi, Osaka. Jakarta. Bandung. Vienna, Stockholm, Caracas, and Rio de Janeiro.
Theme introductions and contributions from leading international and national agencies highlight Hie important role and grave difficulties facing local government in urban management and planning.
