Title: Urban Performance Indicator
Author: Dr. Ravikant Joshi / Sanjukta Ray
Language: English
Description: The unprecedented rapid urban growth during the past decades has compounded the problems of urban local governments, which face a daunting challenge to provide the necessary infrastructure for a productive, sustainable and decent urban life, within the parameters of financial scarcity. Governance can no longer afford to remain complacent with the past trends of performance. Rapid improvement in efficiency is the need of the hour. Hence it is critical to have a comprehensive, objective and practical “Performance Measurement” system for Urban local government. In the last of this 4-part series, the authors have attempted a brief description of each indicator–how to use, its benefits, its significance and implication, and also possible shortcomings (if any) that may warrant cautious use.
