The high urbanization rate has created various problems which include economic, environmental, demographic and social challenges. What effect will this spontaneous urbanization have on the world? What consequence does megacities expansion have on our environment? What are the steps to take in order to ensure safe, comfortable and environmentally friendly cities?
