Urban areas are socio-economic and environmental entities that go beyond historically defined administrative borders. Our conversation has been edited for length and flow. Sometimes it may be led by a group of universities or philanthropies, or a business group or the public sector, but in almost all cases, it is networked and collaborative and it is cross-sector.
