How should India urbanize the cities and tackle the issues of their planning and economics?
A key factor behind the poor urban planning in developing countries such as India is the lack of understanding of land, transport and urban economics. Due to this, urban planning models are majorly unsuccessful in addressing the issues of affordable housing, transport and other basic amenities for the urban poor numbering more than a quarter of urban residents. Planning and Economics of Cities: Shaping India’s Form and Future presents theoretical and empirical research to address the shortcomings in India’s present models and suggests reforms in the current approaches. It incorporates the economics of cities into the urban planning to address the issues in India’s transition to a developed country. It also illustrates best practices from India and other countries to guide reforms in urban planning and development in this country.
