Urban development in Asia has dramatically changed in the last four decades. There has been a shift from primary sectors such as agriculture, fishing and mining to secondary and tertiary sectors through industrial growth and service provision accompanied by rapid economic development in many of the Asian developing countries (Douglas, 1995; Dahiya, 2003). In developing countries the relationship between urbanization and industrialization is not always clear. For example, industrial premises are established in the middle of agricultural land without any infrastructure base. Planned industrialization wherever present is only at an initial stage in most cities. This is also limited to industrial zoning instead of industrial estates. As a result the impact of urban development and industrial development on natural environment is very visible (Losada et al., 1998; Burgess, 2000).
