Summary
Explores the effect of living in today's cities has on the millions of people who already live in metropolises, and those who are daily being drawn into them from the countryside, by the millions. Using 10 cities from around the world as illustrations of different crises that face today's urban poor, this publication seeks to emphasise the urgent needs of many in the city. It is been said that the real battles to achieve the Millennium Development Goals will be fought in the cities.--Publisher's description
