The present volume, The State of Local Governance: A Compendium of Deliberation- Local Governance 2020-2021, is a compilation of analytical and critical reflections and examination of the local governance policies adapted for guaranteed sustainable habitat and shelter, health, environment, education and employment. The compendium is a product of the conversation series, Local Governance, organised by IMPRI, Impact and Policy Research Institute, New Delhi.

The series meditates upon existing policies, their execution, drawbacks and successive attempts for desired results in local governance. It explores the possible strategies adopted in the post-pandemic era for sustainable habitat and environment, the problems of housing in urban localities, and the role of local government in natural disaster-stricken areas. It contemplates initiatives for inclusive city planning, safe sanitation for all, disaster resilience plans and the role of people, such as the People Power Campaign (PPC) in development discourses.
