Summary

This volume explores the dynamics of urbanisation in Northeast India. It discusses the impact of the process of urbanisation on the environment, infrastructure and socio-economic conditions of the region.

The essays in the book:

  • Examine various challenges and opportunities of urbanisation such as frontier urbanism, urban congestion, smart cities, vernacular architecture, urban water and waste management, cross-border migration, and ethnicity;

  • Draw attention to critical issues that have massively disturbed the urban landscape including deterioration of water quality, seismic activity, and air pollution;

  • Give alternatives that could present possible solutions to the problems afflicting this region.

Drawing on case studies rooted in extensive fieldwork, this book will be indispensable to researchers and students of urban studies, human geography, development economics, cultural studies, and South Asian studies. It will also be of interest to policymakers, government representatives, and town planners.
