Improving local government : outcomes of comparative research( Book )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Local governments in the developing world are currently facing serious and urgent problems. Poverty, failings of infrastructure, and the lack of human and financial resources have impacted negatively on€local governments' capacity to perform their mandated functions. This volume€draws attention to the€prescriptions of public administration theory, and their differential impact on different contexts, in different parts of the world.€It challenges existing perspectives on local governance, that either overemphasize the€universality of solutions to local government problems, or segregate solutions, isolating them as relative or transitional -€often reaching no solution at all. The authors gathered here€argue that, whilst there is no one-size-fits-all solution, solutions for specific problems in local governance can undoubtedly be found

Many countries in the Southern African region have undergone a process of fundamental political, economic and social restructuring which has subsequently affected local government and development. In this volume, experts from twelve countries in the region review the process of democratisation and decentralisation. They try to evaluate critically the historical development of local government in each of these countries, highlight good practices in management and development in the region and provide information about local government democratisation and decentralisation in the form of case studies and comparative experiences.

Innovation for the urban age: innovative approaches to public governance for the new urban age :the Winelands papers 2014 by Winelands Conference( Book )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book covers a selection of updated and peerreviewed papers on 'Innovation in the urban age' - a conference held in 2014. The new urban age has been one that has been marked by challenges which has impacted on both developed and developing countries alike; however; it does offer opportunities to respond very positively to global issues such as poverty; inequality; climate change and social marginalisation and poor basic service delivery. The "New Urban Agenda"; that has been proposed by the international community is expected to be all encompassing in terms of responding to global challenges such as inter alia, urban poverty, slums; social marginalisation and inequality and economic depression. There is a need to have a shared vision and understanding of the global challenges that need to be addressed by all the key players and stakeholders, namely governments, the private sector, the citizenry and non-; governmental organisations for innovative and genuine partnerships to be effected in terms of responding to these issues (www.scn.sap.com/community/public.sector). The private sector is generally perceived to be better managed, accessible and more efficient, although it is unregulated and inequitable. Joint collaboration and public - private partnerships can improve equity, accessibility and quality and can be mutually beneficial in terms of exchange of resources, technology, knowledge and skills, cost efficiency and public image
