Mapping urban governance

An event hosted by LSE Cities

Urban Governance Survey
12 October, 5th UCLG Congress: The World Summit of Local and Regional Leaders, Bogotá
Venue: Network Hub

Global comparative research on urban governance is confronted with a substantial data challenge. The global Urban Governance Survey – undertaken by LSE Cities in partnership with UN-Habitat and UCLG, and supported by the MacArthur Foundation – addresses this data challenge and explores new ways of communicating and ‘mapping’ urban governance for public dissemination, comparative policy and research analysis. Building a global database for current models of urban governance already includes over 120 cities. Local governments all around the world continue to face critical decisions about how to face current demands and plan for their immediate urban future.

The results of the Urban Governance Survey were also presented.

The Urban Governance Survey is also part of the larger LSE Cities New Urban Governance research and engagement project.
