Abstract
Effective urban legislation is an indispensable pillar of sustainable urban development. The current unprecedented urban population growth h can result in anarchy and increased inequality if not underpinned by effective and coherent policy and legal, institutional and governance frameworks that will ensure a solid context for planning, dialogue between actors and rights-based approaches to development. Good quality urban law provides predictability and order in urban development, from a wide range of perspectives, including spatial, societal, economic and environmental viewpoints. Through this it contributes to investment, strong economic performance and wealth creation.
