Description: This Book offers perspectives in innovations, practice-based analysis and research concerning the issues that plague the current dimensions of urban development in India. A collection of articles, essays, papers and case-studies, the book provides a platform for exchange of ideas among practitioners, academicians, and policy-makers, including activists and NGOs at national and local levels where the contributors bring out viewpoints from a wide range of professional experiences and cultural backgrounds. By challenging traditional methods and practices, the volume seeks to stimulate thoughts about novel approaches to solving urban issues, especially through the participation of all stakeholders and not just the government.
