    The important connection between governance and poverty can be highlighted as:

    The extent to which the poor actually benefit from the growth of the city – what are the various development projects initiated for the poor
    Extent to which the poor are able to influence this agenda of the institution of city governance

    Among many consequences of Bad governance, the most grave is inequitable distribution of income leading to poverty. Metropolitan-scale government offers the potential for
    resources (notably finance but also land, natural resources and skills) to be mobilised from across the city to provide services and infrastructure for all, including the poor. The structure and processes of city governance have important implications for whether and how urban poverty
    is addressed.
