Urbanisation in the Island Pacific Summary

Urbanisation in the Island Pacific: Towards Sustainable Development by John Connell

Managing rapid urban growth presents a significant challenge in the small independent countries of the Pacific Islands. Although they originated in colonial times, the towns and cities are now distinctively post-colonial, with economies, environments and social structures that reflect unique island characteristics. This transformation has stimulated new concerns, such as the causes and effects of pollution, the need for employment for landless migrants, the need for adequate and affordable housing and the financing of expanding urban services.
This book explores the diversity of the urban experience in the ten independent island states, focusing on strategies to secure long term sustainable development.

Urbanisation in the Island Pacific Reviews

'There is much to recommend in Urbanisation in the Island Pacific. has brought Pacific urban experiences belatedly into the mainstream. The authors, in successfully conveying the complexity and sheer number of pressing issues that the region's towns and cities face, have made a strong case for much greater attention and research in the future.' - Urban Studies
