Kerala : a desakota ?

Abstract : This poster aims to explore the application of the Desakota concept in Kerala (state located in south-east India). The Desakota concept (literally “village-town”) proposed by T. G. McGee (1991) aim to characterise rural settlement patterns specific of Asia, often invisible from the authority point of view, but which are characterized by a mixture of agricultural and non-agricultural activities in the highly populated spaces and where the mobility of its population is locally extreme.
