In 2010 there were 19 megacities with populations exceeding 10 million residents.  By 2030, there will be 31 megacities worldwide.

The greatest growth in urban population will occur in China, India & US.


Increasingly, essential services including water, air & waste management are being addressed at City level, rather than national or regional.

City life is okay but I see little appeal in mega cities. I don't even make use of what the small city I live in has to offer.
As soon as I get time, I drive out to my family estate in the archipelago. Just a 50 minute drive away. It must be a nasty place to live if you can't even get out of the city in that amount of time.

Dreaming about Mega-Cities - when people who live in these concrete monsters have to compromise on their overall live expectancy and have to spend a significant time in traffic jams.

Increasingly these places are becoming more and more hazardous to ones health. That is why in Europe people rather take their residence in a "green environment" than staying in a lone apartment on a 25th floor.
