The growing territorial mismatch between the administrative and the real-life boundaries of urban areas and the conflicting relationship between urban and rural territories within the same areas become more and more serious impediments to integrated urban development. This short paper aims to explore existing knowledge about these problems and examples on attempts for solutions. All these should help to find out what would be the best way for URBACT to help cities to design integrated policy crosscutting urban development strategies for their functional areas, improving also the urban-rural links. Analysts agree that there are different cooperation areas around cities — although the typology of these areas is not universally crystallized.

This book reviews the recent evolutions of cities in the world according to entirely revised theoretical fundamentals of urban systems. It relies on a vision of cities sharing common dynamic features as co-evolving entities in complex systems. Systems of cities that are interdependent in their evolutions are characterized in the context of that dynamics. They are identified on various geographical scales—worldwide, regional, or national. Multi-scale urban processes, whether local one city , or within national systems systems of cities , or linked to the expansion of transnational networks towards global urban systems throughout the world over the period — are deeply analyzed in 16 chapters. This global overview challenges urban governance for designing policies facing globalization and the subsequent ecological transition. Geographical Society of Ireland Special Publication 14 www.

The UGA is a shift in the approach to urban development and infrastructure and the mix of instruments and levers that are available. It's designed to address fundamentals of land supply, development capacity and infrastructure provision by removing undue constraints. The costs and benefits of urban development — on the Ministry for the Environment website. The report identifies and categorises the range of costs and benefits of urban development. It was prepared by MRCagney and informs work on understanding and measuring the wider costs and benefits of urban development under the Urban Growth Agenda.

In Tunis, as in most developing cities, the highly centralized system of authority can be seen as the single supplier-regulator of urban development and sustainability. With a focus on the system of local power in Tunisian cities, this study shows that actions and decisions taken by emerging forms of local government remain highly vulnerable due to extra-local forces. Such a paradox in the forms of power and their manner of conduct, by comparing contextual and conceptual frameworks, draws attention to the issues of democracy in action at the local level and the overall impact of these issues on sustainable urban planning. Urban governments are seeking ways to reduce the unjustifiably high levels of energy and land consumption and preserve and protect the housing stock. In North African cities, the underlying causes of this resource crisis are the low density of the existing urban fabric, the lack of control of urban sprawl, and the increasing intensity of agricultural land conversion which contributes to the rapid proliferation of informal settlements. The apparent absence of rationality in urban planning often results from the absence of functional procedures and institutional arrangements that would be necessary to establish and oversee the application of sustainable construction standards. Moreover, zoning measures motivated by opportunistic considerations which do not conserve resources in the provision of activities, result not only from the growth and the diversification of transport systems and mobility patterns, but also by the physical separation and distance between residential and workplace locations.
The MOU aims to facilitate knowledge-sharing between China and Singapore in the areas of urban governance, liveability, sustainability and policy issues of concern to both governments, as well as draw lessons from the development experience of both countries through visiting fellowships, joint research and publications. This inaugural publication is based on the development experiences and reforms of Singapore and China, and their respective journeys in creating liveable and sustainable cities. This publication focuses on four important aspects of urban development—Urbanisation Overview, Urban Planning and Governance, Public Housing and Urban Infrastructure Financing—and contains contributions from pioneers and eminent experts from both countries.
