I gave a lecture recently in New York on urbanization and global cities. I’m sharing a couple of segments of that as podcasts.
The first is a short introduction to global urbanization. I talk about the radical rural-urban shift in human living patterns, the increase in city size (especially the growth of megacities), and the challenges arising from urban growth in the developing world.
This podcast is a good basic introduction to the topic that will be very helpful for anyone to get an understanding of the basics. Some of the stats on global urbanization are stunning.
