Abstract

The global spread of urban waterfront redevelopment, hitherto largely confined to advanced countries, is starting to impact upon developing countriesas they promote conservation in historic cities in a range of cultural contexts including tourism development and urban renewal. This paper debates theoretical issues raised and reports on the experience of Lamu, an East African port-city where urban conservation including waterfront revitalizationis making progress with the support of local, national and international organizations. The problems of decline and revitalization are assessed in terms of past experience and modern objectives and constraints. Conclusions reflect the need for balanced, culture-dependent approaches.
