Presenting experiences from India, China, Brazil, South Africa and Poland, this book examines the need to boost infrastructure investment in cities as well as the need for prudent fiscal management across all levels of government. This is discussed within the context of the decentralization of service delivery responsibilities. The book proposes considering as one investment financing perspectives that usually exist in isolation from each other, while also consolidating a body of practical and transferable implementation experiences.
