‘How Cities are Governed’ website re-launch

19 May 2016

The 2016 edition of the Urban Governance Survey undertaken by LSE Cities in partnership with UN Habitat and UCLG (Decentralisation and Local Governance Committee), and supported by the MacArthur Foundation, has been launched today. The renovated website displays data from 104 cities spanning five continents, with new survey questions, and is now available in English, Spanish and French. A key element of LSE Cities’ New Urban Governance project, the new online platform presents both the results of the survey and contains more in-depth analysis of existing institutional arrangements and governance challenges faced by cities around the world. It seeks to both address the data challenges confronting research on urban governance, while providing an accessible and detailed resource for the wider public. Local government officials that wish to participate in this edition of the Urban Governance Survey can do so until 30 June 2016.
