About this book

Arguing that "public-private" partnerships are the way forward for urban development in the south as well as in the north, this volume provides a practical sourcebook on how such partnerships can be developed in ways that meet the needs of the poor and reduce social exclusion. Focused on implementation rather than policy, it lays out a strategic framework for building municipal capacity. It provides a useful resource for municipal authorities, development agencies, community groups and those working on urban planning and poverty relief.
