Extrait de la couverture : "Intermediary or medium-sized cities can play an important role in the development of balanced national urban systems. Due to its small size and face to face social interaction, an intermediary city can be the ideal site for good governance and sustainable development, providing services to the surrounding region and thus mitigating the push factor that leads to the emergence of ungovernable and bursting-at-the-seams megacities. This was the assumption that led to an international action research project initiated by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSFIFNRS) under its National Research Programme on Environment, in three cities of the Southern countries. Mingora, an intermediary city in Swat valley, North West Frontier Province, Pakistan, was one of the cities selected for the study. This book documents the second phase of the action research (1996-2000) that facilitated the process of growing awareness of, and people's participation in solving, the urban and environmental management issues through a local agent of change - a group of dedicated young professional men - the Environmental Protection Society (EPS). The process facilitated the identification and analysis of the pressing civic issues (sanitation and waste management, transport, governance) ; explored power dynamics of various stakeholders (government agencies, the municipality, the elite, the communities and the citizen sector organisations); created linkages between the academia, communities and resource organisations; and provided a platform for consultation among various stakeholders. This book brings out the successes and failures of the action research, discusses the conflicts between different key participants in the process and sheds light on the development issues that need to be addressed.", Unknown Binding, Label: City Press, City Press, Produktgruppe: Book, Publiziert: 2002, Studio: City Press
