Urbanisation, Demographic Transition, and the Growth of Cities in India
Full video of talk

Watch the full video of the workshop (above), where Chinmay Tumbe speaks about his paper examining the nature of urbanisation and urban growth in India since the late 19th century, against the backdrop of the unfolding demographic transition.

Through this talk, Tumbe seeks to address various factors that affect India’s relatively slow pace of urbanisation, such as the inter-city variation in population growth rates, and the paradox of faster urban growth in the North combined with slower urbanisation in the South.

The question and answer session that followed can be accessed here. More information about the talk can be found on the event page.
