What does the future look like for city authorities?

As cities try to embrace innovation in an effort to address major urban challenges, they are overwhelmed with issues such as budget constraints, flawed governance structure, lack of leadership commitment and talent, lack of trust among stakeholders (citizens, government and private sector). As such, city authorities need to find ways to develop institutional capacity by investing in people and processes, usher in regulatory reforms to attract capital and human resources in an increasingly competitive landscape, and involve citizens, NGOs, the private sector and academics in decision-making to improve legitimacy and build trust. Urb Your City aims to empower cities to implement these ideas.
