With a population of almost 12 million, Dhaka is the world’s 11th largest city and amongst the most densely populated. At the same time, it is consistently ranked as one of the least livable city in the world. Rapid migration, poor city management, low efficiency and massive corruption in service provision are exacerbating the problems. Urban traffic is reaching nightmare proportions, and water and air pollution from poor waste and traffic management poses serious health risks. The already acute slum population is growing further, contributing to serious human and law and order problems. Actions to ensure an adequate supply of basic services and to tackle corruption and wastage are needed immediately.
This monograph suggests that the management problems of Dhaka cannot be addressed in a piece meal fashion. Deployment of additional resources and massive investment will be required to meet the large backlog of unmet demands. To make this investment effective, there is a need to fundamentally and systemically rethink the governance of Dhaka. The monograph offers some basic guiding principles that must underpin a reform program. It provides alternative approaches based on a review of good practice international experiences.
The monograph concludes that in reforming Dhaka, policymakers will need to establish an elected, decentralized and accountable city government; that has well defined service delivery responsibilities; has considerable financial autonomy; and has well defined relationship with central government. Consistent with this broad foundation and given the primacy of Dhaka, regardless of the outcome of the forthcoming national elections, the challenge of Making Dhaka Livable has become a national priority.
