Urban Competitiveness in Developing Economies, Paperback / softback Book

Urban Competitiveness in Developing Economies Paperback / softback

Edited by Peter Karl Kresl

Part of the Regions and Cities series

Paperback / softback


Plenty has been written on the competitiveness of megacities, capital cities, and regional hubs.

Cities in developing countries have not yet received the same attention - this book fills that gap.

An international team of expert academics have come together to present a comprehensive study of the competitiveness of cities in the developing world.

Spanning Asia, Africa, and Latin America, this book homes in on specific city cases and examines how they relate to the rest of the global economy.

The focus is on acknowledging their unique contexts, while drawing out commonalities, and ultimately identifying ways for them to enhance their competitiveness, wellbeing, and sustainability. This volume will be valuable reading to advanced students, researchers, and policymakers in urban and regional studies, economic geography, and economic development.
