Agricultural change and the transformation of urban-regional linkages in Asia


Rural Development Dialogue 11(2): 1-20
Agricultural change and the transformation of urban-regional linkages in Asia
The article formulates the argument that in most Asian countries urban bias and urban expansion have negative effects on agriculture in large extended metropolitan regions. At the national level these developments represent a drain of rural resources from the rest of the country and thus increase the polarity in rural and urban economies. This raises the important question of the most efficient spatial arrangement from the point of view of the national deployment of resources.
