Vivek Anandan Nair is the head of ASICS & Partnerships at Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship and Democracy. VR Vachana is the Associate Manager for Advocacy at Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship and Democracy. In this episode of 'Understanding the Future of Complexity of City Systems’, with Vivek Anandan Nair and VR Vachana, we explore the topic of the complexity of governance systems in urban areas.
The episode is divided into two-part. In the second part of this episode, we start the conversation to better understand the financial independence and accountability of urban local bodies and how they can be nurtured. We further discuss the topic of strengthening city systems which could lead to the development of resilient cities. Additionally, we discuss the skillsets required to work in the field of city systems and how the political economy of decentralisation can drive the changes in the urban areas. Finally, we close the discussion on City systems vs quality of life.
