The ability of developing countries to maintain their stock of urban infrastructure and to expand in line with rapid urban population growth depends on administrative capabilities and financial resource management. This book provides a comparative international basis on which urban finance and administrative problems in any particular city in a developing country can be assessed, and develops a better understanding of the types of solutions which might be successful in various cities. It offers an in-depth look at the urban finance, administrative practices, and problems in developing countries, and suggests methods for improvement.
