This book is posited on a strong belief that the physical structure of cities and the efficiency of infrastructure services delivered are driven by efficiencies within individual infrastructure sectors, lessons learned across these sectors and the ability to coordinate and integrate sectors to generate scope and scale. The editors have taken a deliberately pragmatic approach to the finance and management of urban infrastructure, presenting chapters in a cross-sectorial fashion, with discussion of both theory and practice. This book is for students and practitioners in policy, planning, urban management, infrastructure finance and management.
