Managing Peri-Urban Expansion - A Study of Planning Approaches adopted in Delhi, Beijing and New York to Manage Regional Growth

Through this study, NIUA has attempted to explore the phenomenon of peri-urban expansion and efforts to manage it through planning and governance frameworks in three different locations and countries - Delhi, Beijing and New York. While the Chinese and American examples do not present clear analogies, they serve as cases that illustrate alternative frameworks with relevance to India. Whereas New York is located in a highly urbanized country, both Delhi and Beijing are in countries that are attempting large scale ‘induced’ urbanization by state-led and artificial means. Whether this form of induced growth is indeed the way to achieve a higher urbanization level and concomitant economic outcomes is a question that will probably find some answers in the Government of India’s new urban impetus to strengthen existing urban centres, through the Smart City and AMRUT (Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation) missions.
