    L’originalité de la structure urbaine de Touba réside tout d’abord sur sa gestion dirigée par le Khalif général et son statut particulier d’un titre foncier qui s’adosse sur une forte démographie incontrôlée conjuguée à un fort étalement mal maitrisé. La politique d'urbanisme de Touba semble se résumer à la création de parcelles d'habitation et au libre choix laissé au khalife pour les sites d'implantation d'équipements ou d'infrastructures, et la destination des réserves.

En effet, les territoires périurbains sont des espaces qui reçoivent l’excédent de la croissance démographique urbaine et qui accueillent les nouveaux projets d’aménagement et de développement (promotions immobilières, implantations de zones d’activités diverses, développement des réseaux de communication, maintien ou développement de certaines agricultures, etc.).

    India

    India’s urbanisation results in the physical and societal transformation of the areas surrounding cities. These periurban interfaces are spaces of flows, shaped by an exchange of matter, people and ideas between urban and rural spaces—and currently they are zones in transition. Periurbanisation processes result inter alia in changing water demands and changing relations between water and society. In this paper the concept of the hydrosocial cycle is applied to interpret the transformation of the waterscapes of six periurban villages in the fringe areas of Pune, Hyderabad and Kolkata.
