Urban situation in selected developing Asian cities. 6. Priority issues and key players. 7. Coping with in-migration and its implications. 8. Strategies and solutions : a retrospective. 9. Urban shelter in developing countries : acquiring viable blueprints. 10. Urban slums : the dark side. 11. Lessons from Japan : controlled urbanisation. Bibliography. Index. "The present publication is a timely reminder of the severity of the crisis that has overtaken urban development, particularly in the Asian cities. Set to collapse under the sheer weight of human numbers, our cities will be choking and dying in a few years from now, if remedial measures and some fine and firm decisions are not taken in respect of urban land management, pollution control, waste management, dispersal of commercial and industrial clusters, and a pragmatic in-migration policy. With profiles of Delhi, Manila and Tokyo, and realistic assessments of the dynamics of urban growth, the publication attempts to bring together the views of several experts in the area of town planning and urban development."
