Integrating Urban Datasets: The Path to Effective Socio-Economic Planning in Urban Pakistan
AbstractEffective urban policy making and implementation in Pakistan is impeded by the problem of integrating data containing incompatible spatial references. There is great heterogeneity across spatial units being used by different urban government departments for data collection and reporting in Pakistan. Each individual agency/ department has imagined and generated its own divisions of the city as suits its own individual needs. This policy brief, recommends policy actions that will overcome these problems. [IGC Policy Brief]. URL:[http://www.theigc.org/sites/default/files/urban_planning_policy_brief.pdf].
