dc.description.abstract The purpose of this report is to illustrate the process of productive transformation in Cape Town and Nairobi. The cities were selected to provide a range of experience and insights into diverse economic circumstances: complex and simple, more and less advanced, rapid and slow growth. City and national governments performed different roles in each case, from the provision of various forms of infrastructure and public goods, to direct support for specific firms and industries. The findings suggest that city governments can make a significant impact, provided they have a clear vision of their role and develop effective implementation capabilities. en
