About the Book :
"The rapid expansion of urban area in the metropolitan cities has given rise to the phenomenon of rural-urban fringe, a transition zone between urban and rural settlement sharing the features of both. The contact of urban area with the rural area affects the lifestyle and economy of the rural area on the outskirts of big cities bringing about phenomenal socio-economic transformation. This volume is based on the papers presented at a seminar organised by the Giri Institute of Development Studies, Lucknow. The 35 papers included in the book have been classified into seven main sub-themes: (i) Rural-Urban Fringe: Conceptual Issues and Challenges; (ii) Delimitation of the Rural-Urban Fringe; (iii) Urban Sprawl and Changing Scenario of Rural-Urban Fringe; (iv) Dynamics of Land Use in Rural-Urban Fringe; (v) Land Acquisition and Livelihood Issues; (vi) Civic Amenities and Quality of Life; and (vii) Planning for Rural Urban Fringe. The present book examines in detail the different issues relating to the problems of rural-urban fringe and its management. It also covers the rural-urban fringe in a comprehensive and multi-dimensional perspective. It will be of great interest for teachers, students, research scholars as well as policy makers interested in issues of urban development planning."
