In its analysis and subsequent recomendations on policy interventions, this report draws on a program of diagnostics called the ‘Urbanization Review’. The UR diagnostic is based on three main pillars of urban development which have emerged as key areas of policy engagement for successful cities. These are: a) planning—charting a course for cities by setting the terms of urbanization, especially policies for using urban land and expanding basic infrastructure and public services; b) connecting—physically linking people to jobs, and businesses to markets; and c) financing—raising and leveraging up-front capital to meet the increasing demand for infrastructure and services.
