Launch of Urban Governance Survey by LSE Cities, UN Habitat and UCLG Committee on Decentralisation and Local Governance

14 July 2015

The New Urban Governance project at LSE Cities, working in partnership with UN Habitat and the UCLG Committee on Decentralisation and Local Governance, has launched a new website to present the first round of results from the Urban Governance Survey. The survey attempts to address a general lack of data about how cities are governed around the world and the new online platform explores new ways of communicating and ‘mapping’ urban governance.

We are now inviting local government officials to participate in the second round of the survey. If you would like your city to be included, please complete our survey. We are very keen to feature as many cities as possible in this analysis and include the results on our new website.

The Urban Governance Survey is part of the larger LSE Cities New Urban Governance research and engagement project, co-funded by the MacArthur Foundation to examine multiple aspects of municipal planning, management, and governance.
