Small cities are ‘key’ to South Asia’s urban future Empty Small cities are ‘key’ to South Asia’s urban future

South Asia’s medium-sized and secondary cities, rather than its megacities, will determine whether urban development succeeds or fails in the region says a UN report.  

The State of Asian and Pacific Cities 2015, released in October 2015 by the UN Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) and the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), says that the way cities develop while still home to a small population can determine how sustainable they are decades later. This includes how they approach energy and resource management and the development of effective and accountable governance.

“They are the window to the future urban world,” Donovan Storey, chief of the sustainable urban development, environment and development division at ESCAP tells SciDev.Net. “In avoiding the mistakes made by the region’s larger megacities we must re-shape our urban future through rapidly growing secondary cities.”

Several South Asian countries lack national urban policies or development frameworks, resulting in government ministries and local bodies being out of step with each other, says the report. It proposes integrated planning, in which national urban strategies guide local authorities to plan for and meet the needs of their cities.

Good article Kith

So the megapolice plan of the government is not the way to go as of this article.
Anyway my idea is megapolice is an good idea which should also include Chinese port city. But only if this government is capable of implementing their plans.
