Résumé

This paper explores the role of urban areas in economic growth, with special emphasis on their evolving role in the new knowledge-based economy, and the resulting challenges for the governance of metropolitan regions, both in industrialized and developing nations. The manner in which metropolitan regions are structured, governed and managed can have a profound impact on levels of economic welfare, job creation, and poverty reduction. Large metropolitan areas play an increasingly strategic role in the new knowledge economy. By the same token, metropolitan governance will become increasingly complex as regional economies become more globalized and information rich. The task of urban managers, planners, and other regional actors will not be any easier. However, much can be learned from both the past mistakes and successes of metropolitan regions in the industrialized world.
