Thanks Junaid for taking the time to comment. I wish I knew the answer. I take to heart two very well known edicts: (i) urbanization matters and (ii) urbanization needs to be managed. You are absolutely right that the time now is to have a deeper discussion on what mangement model is likely to work in a country like Bangladesh. I am not sure there are any silver bullets, but I am sure you will agree that the model in place is not working. There are plenty of ideas on alternative models among urbanization experts in Bangladesh, but I don't think we have quite figured the synthesis and more importantly, how to garner the political will for urban reforms.
