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 by 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
