The Elgar Companion to Urban Infrastructure Governance is a comprehensive and systemic overview of urban infrastructure systems, with a particular focus on urban challenges and the governance of these systems.

Structured in three parts, the book features empirical illustrations of urban challenges, presents the functioning of different primary urban infrastructure systems, and discusses how the governance of urban systems works and should work. Twenty-two chapters examine the typical challenges that cities face, including financing, economic, demand, housing, social, and jurisdictional challenges along an original conceptualization, and present innovative ways of governing such challenges.
