Urban governance and sustainable development. CITIES ON THE AGENDA

Case studies and best practices

This report is part of a collaborative effort between the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) and the Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS) to explore trends in development and development cooperation. It aims at 1) taking stock of the current challenges of sustainable urban development in the global South and the (re-) emergence of cities on the agenda of international development cooperation; and 2) providing material for a discussion of the possibilities of focusing on cities in Denmark’s future development cooperation. As part of the analysis undertaken for this report, the MFA asked us to include a case study of Jakarta. We thank the staff of the Danish Embassy in Jakarta for their assistance, and the MFA staff in Copenhagen for their inputs into and comments on the report. We also owe thanks to all the persons in Jakarta and Copenhagen who have taken time to give interviews for this report, and to the Universities of Amsterdam and Copenhagen for hosting seminars. Apart from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the report is written with a broader, interested audience in mind, such as municipal and professional organisations.
