    Yet the general trend of decentralization ongoing in most developing countries has seldom come with sufficient levels of fiscal power that would enable local authorities to Urban growth strategies of nations book urban infrastructure investments. Insurers can help in these areas in terms of risk engineering advice on infrastructure maintenance and also appropriate levels of insurance property damage and business interruption coverage. One sector will always grow faster than another, so the need for unbalanced growth will continue as investments must complement existing imbalance. In a less-developed country, these characteristics lead to scarce resources or inadequate infrastructure to exploit these resources. In particular, the book will help the reader to discover underlying principles for the planning of future cities and peri-urban regions in relation to: i Balanced urban development policies and institutions for future cities; ii Understanding the effects of land use change, population increase, and water demand on the liveability of cities; iii Long-term planning needs and transdisciplinary approaches to ensure the secured future for generations ahead; and iv Strategies to adapt the cities and land, water and energy uses for viable and liveable cities. Infrastructure failure would have significant implications for property and business continuity for city authorities as well as local and central Government bodies.
