Urban development policies for the provision of utility infrastructure: a case study of Dhaka, Bangladesh
Utilities Policy, 2018, vol. 54, issue C, 107-114
This research aims to analyse three urban development policies relevant to the utility infrastructure provision in Dhaka, Bangladesh for improving the environment. Available relevant literature, site survey data, and stakeholder's opinion derived from semi-structured interviews were utilised for qualitative analysis. The results reveal that providing the utility infrastructure in the existing urbanised areas is possible by service upgrading and incremental development. Nevertheless, though implementation is politically and financially challenging, this research suggests that the new urban policy with the utility infrastructure provision prior to development is more effective.
