This publication is a result of a specific study conducted for the degree of Master of Philosophy in Development Geography in 2009 on the impacts of urban displacement and the consequent resettlement of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It argued residential relocation has negatively affected the socio-economic well-being of the urban poor people. This is manifested in many ways. First, relocation has resulted in the loss of families locational advantage'. Second, relocation has disrupted many home-based, small-scale income-generating businesses, is the domain of women. Third, relocation created a loss of community relationship and neighborhood support that revolve around community-based social (burial and church-based) and economic (saving) organizations. Yet, the impact of resettlement has variable outcome for the households in terms of the amount of compensation received, power relation with authorities and community participation in decision-making. It concludes urban renewal and resettlement policies must be consistent, well-designed and implemented in partnership with the involvement of people and their organizations, NGOs and the private sectors.
This book examines the interaction of land use and transport, specifically focusing on developing a better understanding of how the urban structure impacts on road congestion and travel costs. A land use and transport model has been developed using data from Riyadh and Melbourne. This book suggested an ideal urban form to reduce traffic congestion and trip length and improve accessibility levels. For both Melbourne and Riyadh the findings indicated that the best result in terms of travel efficiency, environment and accessibility can be achieved when urban growth is shifted towards decentralised structure (polycentric). To achieve polycentric approach, urban policy needs to be broadened to include activities relocated within a polycentric structure, as well as residential relocation balanced with activity locations and households in activity centers.
The elderly population is increasing all over the world. Elderly people have special needs, which are usually related to the change associated with the aging process. Relocation of the elderly person in residential homes is a stressful event that requires adjustment and coping. Mal-adaptation to either the aging process or the institutional environment leads to low self-esteem, depression, loneliness, and social isolation. Participation in social interaction reduces isolation and increases the level of self-esteem and acceptance. Recreational and leisure activities are recommended and used as a form of treatment to improve physical, mental, and emotional well being of the residents in the institution. This book should be useful for health team member, family caregiver, and community member.
This work has been prompted by a perceived erosion of Australian sense of place, including older residential areas of inner cities that exhibit a vitality created by different immigrant groups. Questions arise about whether these places are merely translocated replicas of the ways of life in the former countries or are they reflections of cultural transformations emerging as a result of migration and relocation? The work suggests that the migrant character of inner city areas is a form of urban heritage which is being lost due to the rapid rate of urban renewal in most Australian cities. The work is presented in three parts, Part One: 'Cultural Pluralism outside Cultural Heritage' contextualises the theory associated with this study, including many unresolved questions. Part Two: 'Migrant Place-Making' uses case studies to explore the interpretation of migrant place-making and associated heritage values. Part Three: 'Cultural Pluralism as Cultural Heritage' suggests a new theoretical position about migrant place-making, including a typology of migrant places in Australia and the heritage implications. The work is aimed at urban planners, landscape architects and heritage plan

The Topaz War Relocation Center, also known as the Central Utah Relocation Center (Topaz), was a camp which housed Nikkei -- Americans of Japanese descent and immigrants who had come to the United States from Japan. There were a number of such camps used during the Second World War, under the control of the War Relocation Authority. The camp consisted of 19,800 acres (8,012.8 ha), nearly four times the size of the more famous Manzanar War Relocation Center in California. Most Topaz internees lived in the central residential area located approximately 15 miles (24.1 km) west of Delta, Utah, though some lived as caretakers overseeing agricultural land and areas used for light industry and animal husbandry.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Tanjong Rhu is a residential neighbourhood in Kallang in the south-eastern part of Singapore. Tanjong Rhu has been associated with ship building and repairing from the early days. Captain Flint, a harbour master, started a boat building and repair company here in 1822. A Mr Tivendale had his shipyard here in the 1860s. As late as the 1980s and the early 1990s, the Tanjong Rhu area was an industrial area with shipyards. The water surrounding Tanjong Rhu was polluted with industrial and domestic waste, creating an extremely unpleasant environment. A massive relocation exercise was then undertaken by the Singapore Government to transform Tanjong Rhu into a high-end residential area. Reclamation of land along the Tanjong Rhu coast began as early as 1992. Private developers then started the new residential developments in Tanjong Rhu. Today, the shipyards have since been relocated elsewhere and condominiums have replaced them.
This book provides an interdisciplinary analysis of the correlates and consequences of residential relocation. Drawing on multiple nationally representative data sets, the book explores historic patterns and current trends in household mobility, individuals' mobility-related decisions, and the individual, family, and community outcomes associated with moving. These sections inform later discussions of mobility-related policy, practice, and directions for future research.
