Splitting up Dhaka city: rationales, challenges and prospects as a sustainable city

Splitting up Dhaka city: rationales, challenges and prospects as a sustainable city The objective of this study is to analyse the rationales, challenges and prospects of Dhaka City being split up, for the purposes of creating a sustainable city grounded in relevant theories and widely used and accepted standards. We cited the opinions of urban planners and politicians and referred to relevant theories and standards to achieve this objective. An assessment of Dhaka being divided in accordance with the concept of city development strategies (CDS) reveals considerable deficiencies in most aspects of public goods and services provisions. Whilst splitting Dhaka into separate sections supports the ‘World City Hypothesis’ it is not without criticisms. Resource constraint and oversight to address those deficiencies make it very difficult for Dhaka's authorities to achieve sustainable urbanisation. Therefore, stringent decisions and appropriate strategies should be implemented by the Bangladeshi government to resolve these deficiencies and mismanagement to make the city both liveable and sustainable. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Innovation and Sustainable Development Inderscience Publishers

Abstract

The objective of this study is to analyse the rationales, challenges and prospects of Dhaka City being split up, for the purposes of creating a sustainable city grounded in relevant theories and widely used and accepted standards. We cited the opinions of urban planners and politicians and referred to relevant theories and standards to achieve this objective. An assessment of Dhaka being divided in accordance with the concept of city development strategies (CDS) reveals considerable deficiencies in most aspects of public goods and services provisions. Whilst splitting Dhaka into separate sections supports the ‘World City Hypothesis’ it is not without criticisms. Resource constraint and oversight to address those deficiencies make it very difficult for Dhaka's authorities to achieve sustainable urbanisation. Therefore, stringent decisions and appropriate strategies should be implemented by the Bangladeshi government to resolve these deficiencies and mismanagement to make the city both liveable and sustainable.
