Port city renewal in developing countries: a study of East African waterfronts
The global spread of urban waterfront redevelopment, hitherto largely confined to advanced countries, is now starting to impact upon developing countries too as they seek to revive historic cities in contexts including Islamic renewal, tourism development and globalization. This paper reports on contrasted experiences in Kenya and Tanzania where waterfront redevelopment in four port cities is making progress as an element in coastal urban conservation, with the support of local, national and international organizations. Case studies are related to wider policy issues, to relevant literature and to experience elsewhere. The paper is relevant not only to Geography and African Studies but also within educational, urban planning and port management circles in other developing areas of the world.

Abstract

The global spread of urban waterfront redevelopment, hitherto largely confined to advanced countries, is now starting to impact upon developing countries too as they seek to revive historic cities in contexts including Islamic renewal, tourism development and globalization. This paper reports on contrasted experiences in Kenya and Tanzania where waterfront redevelopment in four port cities is making progress as an element in coastal urban conservation, with the support of local, national and international organizations. Case studies are related to wider policy issues, to relevant literature and to experience elsewhere. The paper is relevant not only to Geography and African Studies but also within educational, urban planning and port management circles in other developing areas of the world.
