About the product

Good governance is widely recognised as the key to human development. This publication analyzes processes, methods and experience of participatory local governance as demonstrated by the Local Initiative Facility for Urban Environment (LIFE), a global programme launched at the Earth Summit in 1992. It shares lessons and insights concerning the local-local dialogue of the local actors - the local authorities, the non-governmental organisations and the community-based organisations - in improving the living conditions in low-income urban communities in developing countries around the world.
