Chapter 9 in Cities Transformed: Demographic Change and Its Implications in the Developing World
The world faces an unprecedented urban expansion with projections for the global urban population reach nearly 5 billion by the year 2030. Virtually all of this growth will occur in the developing world where cities gain an average of 5 million residents every month.
