About this book

Cities in developing countries are experiencing unprecedented population growth, which is exacerbating their already substantial problems in providing shelter and basic services. Four of the many challenges to developing country megacities are addressed: labour markets, housing, water and sanitation, and transporation, along with a synthesis of general thinking on how to meet megacity challenges and be competitive in the twenty-first century.
