Delimitacja obszarów metropolitalnych jako podstawa wdrażania metropolitan governance
MetadataShow full item record
International literature on management in metropolitan areas emphasises that large systems of urbanised space, which are currently managed by a number of scattered decision centres, have lost their ability to overcome existing barriers for further development. This entails that management systems have become inadequate for handling increasingly complex functional urban areas which are more and more based on functional rather than administrative relationships. The notion of metropolitan governance, which is currently considered by international scientists as the most suitable method of management in metropolitan areas has been developed to a large degree as an answer to these dynamic changes. The article presents an overview of several methods for delimitation of metropolitan areas, differences arising therefrom and recommendations with regards to the most proper method of delimitation allowing for successful implementation of metropolitan governace.
