The Second Half Of The Twentieth Century Has Witnessed A Marked Shift Of Population From Rural To Urban Areas. This Accelerated Rate In The Growth Of Urban Population Is A Necessary Consequence Of Modernization And Industrialization To Which We Are Committed. The Rice Of Urban Centres Of Population, If Not Properly Controlled, Is Bound To Be Haphazard And To Lead To Growth Of Slums. The Administration Of These Urban Areas, Which Generally Is, Or Should Be, The Responsibility Of Local Bodies, Is An Important Part Of The Administration Of The State. As A Matter Of Fact, The Quality Of Urban Administration Affects Urban Dwellers More Immediately And Closely Than The Administration At Higher Levels. This Is Because Subjects Like Health, Sanitation, Slum Clearance, Housing, Education, Etc., Have A Direct Bearing On The Welfare Of The People.Urban India Has Attracted The Attention Of Town Planners, Architects, Traffic Experts, Scientists, Sociologists As Well As Social Scientists. But The Area That Has Received The Least Attention And The One That Has Remained Largely Unexplored Are The Ones Relating To The Problem Of The Agency For Urban Planning And Development. It Is Time The Political Scientists And Students Of Public Administration Closely Study The Structure And Suitability Of The Agency For Urban Planning And Development, And Suggest Ways And Means For Streamlining It Specially In The Context Of The Problems And Challenges That Urban Government Is Called Upon To Tackle. The Need To Comprehend And Synthesize The Analysis And Interpretation Of Basic Facts And Forces Relating To Urban Improvement Gains Fresh Urgency. The Present Study Accomplishes This Task By Providing A Bold, Balanced And Imaginative Approach To Meeting The Greatest Challenge Of Urban India. Based On Empirical Data, It Examines The Suitability Of Improvement Trusts In The Field Of Urban Development, Their Administrative Set-Up, Working And Planning, The Execution Process And The Problem Of Finance.

Most research on globalization has focused on macroeconomic and economy-wide consequences. This book explores an under-researched area, the impacts of globalization on cities and national urban hierarchies, especially but not solely in developing countries. Most of the globalization-urban research has concentrated on the "global cities" (e.g. New York, London, Paris, Tokyo) that influence what happens in the rest of the world. In contrast, this research looks at the cities at the receiving end of the forces of globalization. The general finding is that large cities, on balance, benefit from globalization, although in some cases at the expense of widening spatial inequities.

For some 20 years, Kunming, a provincial capital city in China - 3.2 million inhabitants - has been the twin city of the European metropolis Zurich. As a direct result of this partnership, Kunming now has the first inner-city bus line in China, the first large-scale conservation of a historical part of the town, and new concepts for urban development at a regional level. This pioneering collaboration between western and Chinese planning teams, and the experience acquired in managing urban development projects, are not only significant for Kunming, but of importance for all countries interested in sharing the expertise and knowledge of professionals, whether from East or West, North or South. The challenge lies in reconciling the traditional and historical background of large Asian cities with their zeal for progress, so they may benefit from western technology and practice but avoid repeating the same mistakes on an even larger scale.

This book provides a unique synthesis of concepts and tools to examine natural resource, socio-economic, legal, policy and institutional issues that are important for managing urban growth into the future. The book will particularly help the reader to understand the current issues and challenges and develop strategies and practices to cope with future pressures of urbanisation and peri-urban land, water and energy use challenges. In particular, the book will help the reader to discover underlying principles for the planning of future cities and peri-urban regions in relation to: (i) Balanced urban development policies and institutions for future cities; (ii) Understanding the effects of land use change, population increase, and water demand on the liveability of cities; (iii) Long-term planning needs and transdisciplinary approaches to ensure the secured future for generations ahead; and (iv) Strategies to adapt the cities and land, water and energy uses for viable and liveable cities. There are growing concerns about water, food security and sustainability with increased urbanisation worldwide. For cities to be liveable and sustainable into the future there is a need to maintain the natural resource base and the ecosystem services in the peri-urban areas surrounding cities. This need is increasing under the looming spectre of global warming and climate change. This book will be of interest to policy makers, urban planners, researchers, post-graduate students in urban planning, environmental and water resources management, and managers in municipal councils.
