Port cities across the world contribute to their local and national economy. Therefore, their planning and management attracts special attention of local & national authorities. In a port city, harbour/marine area not only influences development of the city but it also, in the process, gets impacted by the negative externalities. As the port activities expands the city around it gets diversified and the port loses importance. It takes for a while to integrate harbour areas into port-city using planning tools such as waterfront development and revitalisation of port region. This book tries to assess the port city development in India and Canada, taking examples of two port cities- Kandla and Halifax respectively. It analyses negative externalities on harbour environment and brings out social concerns in these cities. Environmental priorities concerning coastal and marine environment of both the countries have also been assessed. This book is useful for policy makers, administrators, planners and urban professionals, researchers & NGOs working in the field of coastal zone management and students of urban and regional planning and urban geography.
