The last millennium marked a symbolic transition in the evolution of human settlements through which the world’s people become more urban than rural. The rapid population growth in cities gives rise to concerns about the changing nature of the relationship between rural and urban. In 2003, people who live in city areas of developing countries accounted for 48%, or approximately three billion people, of the world’s population; moreover, by 2035, half of the world’s poor people are projected to live in urban areas (UN-HABITAT 2006, 2010).
