Primate city The dominant conurbation s of a country can benefit to a greater extent from the same things cities offer, making them magnets for not just the non-urban population, but also urban and suburban population from other cities.
Dominant conurbations are quite often primate citiesbut do not have to be. For Dimension of rural employment Greater Manila is rather a conurbation than a city: Economic effect[ edit ] As cities develop, effects can include a dramatic increase and change in costs, often pricing the local working class out of the market, including such functionaries as employees of the local municipalities.
The drive for rapid urban growth and often efficiency can lead to less equitable urban development. Think tanks such as the Overseas Development Institute have proposed policies that encourage labor-intensive growth as a means of absorbing the influx of low-skilled and unskilled labor.
In many cases, the rural-urban low skilled or unskilled migrant workers, attracted by economic opportunities in urban areas, cannot find a job and afford housing in cities and have to dwell in slums. Urbanization is often viewed as a negative trend, but there are positives in the reduction of expenses in commuting and transportation while improving opportunities for jobs, education, housing, and transportation.
Living in cities permits individuals and families to take advantage of the opportunities of proximity and diversity. In many developing countries where economies are growing, the growth is often erratic and based on a small number of industries.
For young people in these countries barriers exist such as, lack of access to financial services and business advisory services, difficulty in obtaining credit to start a business, and lack of entrepreneurial skills, in order for them to access opportunities in these industries.
Investment in human capital so that young people have access to quality education and infrastructure to enable access to educational facilities is imperative to overcoming economic barriers.
An urban heat island is formed when industrial and urban areas produce and retain heat. Much of the solar energy that reaches rural areas is consumed by evaporation of water from vegetation and soil.
Vehicles, factories and industrial and domestic heating and cooling units release even more heat. When rain occurs in these large cities, the rain filters down the pollutants such as CO2 and other green house gases in the air onto the ground below.
Then, those chemicals are washed directly into rivers, streams and oceans, causing a decline in water quality and damaging marine ecosystems. First, the birth rate of new urban dwellers falls immediately to replacement rate, and keeps falling, reducing environmental stresses caused by population growth.
Secondly, emigration from rural areas reduces destructive subsistence farming techniques, such as improperly implemented slash and burn agriculture. The mix of changing environmental conditions and the growing population of urban regions, according to UN experts, will strain basic sanitation systems and health care, and potentially cause a humanitarian and environmental disaster.
However, residents in poor urban areas such as slums and informal settlements suffer "disproportionately from disease, injury, premature death, and the combination of ill-health and poverty entrenches disadvantage over time.
While urbanization is associated with improvements in public hygienesanitation and access to health careit also entails changes in occupational, dietary and exercise patterns. Overall, body mass index and cholesterol levels increase sharply with national income and the degree of urbanization.
Throughout the world, as communities transition from rural to more urban societies, the number of people effected by asthma increases.
The odds of reduced rates of hospitalization and death from asthmas has decreased for children and young adults in urbanized municipalities in Brazil. Similar to areas in the United States with increasing urbanization, people living in growing cities in low income countries experience high exposure to air pollution, which increases the prevalence and severity of asthma among these populations.
Researchers suggest that this difference in hazard ratios is due to the higher levels of air pollution and exposure to environmental allergens found in urban areas. Furthermore, any amount of exposure to high levels of air pollution have shown long term effects on the Foxp3 region.
The simplest explanation is that areas with a higher population density are surrounded by a greater availability of goods.
Committing crimes in urbanized areas is also more feasible. Modernization has led to more crime as well.
This interagency report on the gender dimension of agricultural work was produced by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Labour Office (ILO) following two years of work begun in It is the first comprehensive look at gender and work in rural areas since the start of the global economic crisis.

There is a greater awareness of the income gap between the rich and poor due to modern media. This leads to feelings of deprivation which can lead to crime.

|The stylized, historical evidence-based models of explanations like that of Clark and Kuznets or development theories like that of Lewis were the basis for the policy framework of these countries. As is now too familiar, these received theories explain that as the economies grow the structure of production changes in a manner that the share of agriculture declines progressively and the share of industry increases until it reaches almost half, and this is followed by expansion of the share of services.|

There is also a smaller association between unemployment rate, police expenditures and crime. These areas have less social cohesion, and therefore less social control. This is evident in the geographical regions that crime occurs in. As most crime tends to cluster in city centers, the further the distance from the center of the city, the lower the occurrence of crimes are.
People from one area are displaced and forced to move into an urbanized society. Here they are in a new environment with new norms and social values.
This can lead to less social cohesion and more crime. Residents of rural areas and communities in the United States have higher rates of obesity and engage in less physical activity than urban residents.
Changing forms[ edit ] Different forms of urbanization can be classified depending on the style of architecture and planning methods as well as historic growth of areas.Rural poverty refers to poverty in rural areas, including factors of rural society, rural economy, and rural political systems that give rise to the poverty found there.
