The role of local government, and its expanding role in many countries, makes local government an important topic. Understanding the often diverse functions of local government is vital, and designing capable local government is challenging. The two volumes in this series provide insight and guidance. This volume, which focuses on governance, addresses three main topics—fiscal and financial management, government integrity and accountability, and reform imperatives. This chapter provides a chapter by chapter introduction to and summary of each of the ten chapters covering these topics.
