Elevator Pitch - Mapping urban governance

Elevator Pitch - Mapping urban governance

12 october
18.00 to 19.30
Venue: 
Network Hub

Description

The ​U​rban ​G​overnance ​S​urvey is an initiative by LSE Cities, UN-Habitat and the UCLG Committee on Decentralization and Local-Self Government and supported by the MacArthur Foundation. These institutions have been working together since 2014 in an effort to identify trends in ​the way cities are governed. Local governments all around the world continue to face critical decisions about how to face current demands and plan for their immediate urbanfuture in a situation where urbanization rates are influencing development dynamics on a global scale, posing unprecedented challenges for urban governance.

The session will be a perfect opportunity to present the results of the urban governance survey and the features and usefulness of the platform, as well as to offer a space for cities to engage and discuss about current urban governance trends and challenges.
