The term periurban is used frequently in the literature and in policy discussions, yet definitions are largely situational and case specific. They provide little basis for a unified understanding of what constitutes periurban. Our goal to provide some theoretical clarity and practical utility to this problem by creating a typology of periurban. Our typology identifies the institutional framework and relevant networks in the different “types” of periurban. Thus, development workers can use this as a tool to identify the key institutions in their area(s) of interest.
The resources in this website are organised into four themes.
