This book explores significant aspects of the New Urban Agenda in the Asia-Pacific region, and presents, from different contexts and perspectives, innovative interventions afoot for transforming the governance of 21st-century cities in two key areas: (i) urban planning and policy; and (ii) service delivery and social inclusion. Representing institutions across a wide geography, academic researchers and development practitioners from Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America have authored the chapters that lend the volume its distinctly diverse topical foci. Based on a wide range of cases and intriguing experiences, this collection is a uniquely valuable resource for everyone interested in the present and future of cities and urban regions in Asia-Pacific.

An award-winning urbanist, Dr. Bharat Dahiya combines research, policy analysis and development practice aimed at examining and tackling socio-economic, environmental and governance issues in the global urban context. Since early-1990s, Bharat’s research and professional work has focused on sustainable cities and urbanization, strategic urban planning and development, sustainable and inclusive cities, urban environment and resilience, and urban governance. Working with the World Bank, UN-Habitat, the Asian Development Bank, United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS), and UNDP, he provided policy advice and technical support to national and local governments. Moreover, working with these international agencies, he initiated, led and contributed to international projects on sustainable urban development in the Asia-Pacific region.


Whilst working on operational projects on sustainable urban development, Bharat contributed to knowledge generation, especially through meta research and review of policies, programmes and projects. At the World Bank headquarters, he conducted the first-ever systematic review of the Bank’s investments for improving urban liveability, published as a co-authored book, Urban Environment and Infrastructure: Toward Livable Cities (World Bank, 2004; ISBN 978-0821357965). he conceptualized and coordinated the preparation of United Nations’ first-ever report on The State of Asian Cities 2010/11 (UN-Habitat and UN-ESCAP, 2010; ISBN 978-9211322743). More recently, he co-authored Partnering for Sustainable Development: Guidelines for Multi-stakeholder Partnerships to Implement the 2030 Agenda in Asia and the Pacific (UNU-IAS and UN-ESCAP, 2018; ISBN 978-92-808-4585-3). Bharat is co-editor of New Urban Agenda for Asia-Pacific: Governance for Sustainable and Inclusive Cities (forthcoming, Springer).
