22 February 2011: Spatializing Knowledge in Urban Governance

New forms of urban governance require Indian local bodies to work increasingly
with other partners from private sector and civil society organisations. Such
networks also demand spatialized knowledge to provide legitimacy in
negotiations for setting priorities, and for making processes transparent and
effective. Such knowledge is available in many formats (expert, embedded,
tacit, community-based), but not always recognized or generated in a usable
form. Spatializing knowledge provides a means to link different types of
knowledge to one locality to promote common understanding, potentially
increasing legitimacy in decision-making. This presentation reports on methods
developed in the Netherlands-India research programme on ‘Utilizing spatial
knowledge in urban governance networks’, being carried out in four cities in
India. The presentation will discuss the potential of the tools developed so
far for more participatory urban governance networks.
