Urban Governance


Complex, urban challenges such as provision of public services and infrastructures demand integrated approaches and new forms of multi-level cooperation and leadership from local authorities. Indispensable factors for inclusive and sustainable urban development therefore comprise a planning process that cuts across sectors and departments, as well as active integration of a broad spectrum of actors from the public, private and civil sectors. In order to prepare cities for these challenges as well as provide them with support, adelphi offers a range of services: from specific policy analyses and the development of capacity-building measures to the development of new dialogue formats. Furthermore, adelphi analyses inter-state cooperation initiatives between cities as well as the role of urban actors in international negotiations.
