Abstract:This collective volume contains papers read at a two-day workshop on 'Space and place in development geography', held in August 2001 in Utrecht, The Netherlands. The papers contribute to the ongoing debate about geography, development thinking and the significance of space (sheer physical distance) and place (i.e. the characterisitics of localities) in the development of the poorer part of the world. The globalization debate has also challenged the validity of distinguishing a developing (or underdeveloped) part of the world as a separate agenda for analysis. Contributions on Africa: Development geography at the crossroads of livelihood and globalization (Leo de Haan and Annelies Zoomers); Contrasting experiences in the privatization of solid waste collection in Accra (Ghana), Nairobi (Kenya) and Hyderabad (India) (Johan Post, Nelson Obirih-Opareh, Moses Ikiara and Jaap Broekema); Wanting water: popular politics in response to changing agency of water supply in a peripheral low-income area in Kano, Nigeria (Gunilla Andrae); From 'safe haven' to 'refugee affected area': impact of refugees and relief resources on local economy and livelihood in Ngara, Tanzania (Henk Huisman).
