It is expected that 60 percent of the world population will be urban by 2030.  Does this matter?


Key questions:


  • What is urbanisation?
  • What are the causes of urbanisation and how do they differ between MEDCs and LEDCs?
  • How and why has the pace of urbanisation varied between MEDCs and LEDCs?
  • What are the problems created by urbanisation in MEDC and LEDCs?  How can they be managed?
