Economic and social dimensions of urban development


Dr. Shripathi KP

Human face to development with human resource development approach carries the prospect of unleashing the potential that lies within all people, allowing people to contribute and indeed transform the development strategy into a sustainable one. This will be more relevant in the context of human capital based modern thinking on development and more specifically in urban development. It is important to note that the contribution of urban sector to GDP is currently expected to be in the range of 50-60 per cent. In this context, enhancing the productivity of urban areas is now main focus of the urban development policy. National economic growth and poverty reduction efforts will be increasingly determined by the productivity of these cities and towns. This in turn depends on attaining efficiency and equity in planning coordination, delivery and financing of urban infrastructure and services. Migration of labour, formation of slums, welfare of the low income group, poverty have to find due focus in the development policy.
