Exploring how urban professionals plan, manage and govern cities in emerging economies, this insightful book studies the actions and instruments they employ. It highlights how the paradigms of interventions and approaches to urban management are shifting, indicating that urban governance is becoming increasingly important in dealing with wicked issues, like climate change and social and economic inequalities in cities.

Urban Planning, Management and Governance in Emerging Economies offers rich international examples looking at housing, public space, water, climate change, the environment and economic development. Chapters showcase the changing role of urban professionals, with a particular focus on the dynamic social, cultural and economic transformations of cities in emerging economies. Exploring contemporary approaches to urban governance, contributors draw attention to the prevalence of smart cities, new forms of partnerships and just transitions in a changing urban landscape.

Researchers and students of urban development, planning, management and governance will appreciate the multiple theoretical angles and the key case studies used throughout the book. The examples and theories will be helpful for urban leaders, strategists and advocates working in emerging economies.
Critical Acclaim
‘The authors argue that cities in emerging economies can increase their sustainable competitiveness by replacing their traditional system of urban planning and management with a modern system of urban governance. This is a must-read for those interested to understand how cities in emerging economies can cope with societal dynamics.’
– Leo van den Berg (Em), Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands

‘I find this exciting book an interesting read, particularly in the current times of the Covid-19 pandemic. As expected of the authors, the book does inspire us “to reframe urban problems and identify innovative ways and opportunities to intervene in cities”.’
– Mingshun Zhang, Beijing University of Civil Engineering and Architecture, China
