Governing Megacities in Emerging Countries
This book is part of Chaire Ville’s research program (http://www.enpc.fr/chaire-ville). It started as a small working group for the five authors to present their research on the cities they had been working on for several years. Other colleagues joined the ‘club’ and contributed to enrich the final result – Charlotte Halpern and Patrick Le Galès (CEE, SciencesPo), Frédéric Gilli (Chaire Ville) – and the editing work by SciencesPo Les Presses also improved the manuscript. Behind the scene are the infinite contacts and personal exchanges that each author has established in ‘his’ metropolis. Without this support, the interviews and open discussions, this book would have been impossible. Once published in French it received valuable comments from several colleagues: Christophe Defeuilley (EDF R&D), Juliette Galonnier (SciencesPo), Jean Philippe Leresche (Lausanne University), Pauline Prat (SciencesPo) and Eric Verdeil (CNRS, EVS, University of Lyon). It has also been discussed at several seminars: SciencesPo’s ‘Cities are back in Towns’; Latts Ecole des Ponts; Fondation Braillard in Geneva; Agence Française de Développement’s research seminar; and World Water Summit 2012 an event organised by Suez Environment and CGLU.
In terms of institutional support we acknowledge funding from our present partners in Chaire Ville – Agence Française de Développement, GDF SUEZ, Suez Environnement – and past partners, Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations, DATAR, Suez Environnement. Not only did they bring financial support, but also their interest in the substance of the research.
Karen George translated the introduction and the chapters on Shanghai, Cape Town and Santiago de Chile. Sharmila Sarkar and Vandana Kawlra were responsible for the translation of the chapter on Mumbai and the conclusion was translated by Amy Jacobs. Before delivery to the publisher, Jonathan Rutherford (Latt, Ecole des Ponts) performed a final English language quality check
