Chapter 9 prepares a report card by highlighting the major findings covering each of the themes of the book: urban poverty, income growth, and inequality; migration, rural−urban linkage, and transformative potential; migration, better livelihoods, and inclusive development; quality of life and sustainability matters; urbanization and the demographic dividend; and migration and modernization. It highlights the progress made in the 20-year period and the gaps and challenges. Opportunities and challenges are then discussed critically through policy lenses. Based on the policy analysis as well as lessons from better practice analysis across the globe, it recommends appropriate measures and strategies to make Dhaka a more prosperous, sustainable, inclusive, and liveable city. Finally, it sums up the major findings in response to the compelling questions regarding scope for the poorer segment of urban residents to reap benefits of better lives, better incomes and claim equal share in the city’s growing prosperity like their non-poor counterparts in the concluding remarks.

Keywords:   New Urban Agenda, report card, policy imperatives, social protection, land-use planning, mass transit system, R & D, capacity creation, rural−urban synergies, metropolitan government
