Some authors believe that urbanization is a ‘Modern Disease’. In not less than 250words explain if you agree with this view and give your own opinion. Urbanization (or urbanization) is the increase in the population of cities in proportion tothe region's rural population Impacts
1.The urban areas have become concrete jungle.2.Approximately 10% of the farmers provide for 90% of the population which ishuge load on the farmers.3.Pollution is on the rise and affects global warming.4.Deforestation (the conversion of forested areas to non-forest land use such asarable land, pasture, urban use, logged area, or wasteland) takes place. o
Deforestation affects the amount of water in the soil and groundwater andthe moisture in the atmosphere. o
Shrinking forest cover lessens the landscape's capacity to intercept, retainand transport precipitation. Instead of trapping precipitation, which then percolates to groundwater systems, deforested areas become sources of surface water runoff, which moves much faster than subsurface flows.That quicker transport of surface water can translate into flash floodingand more localized floods than would occur with the forest cover.In developing countries, people who come from rural often tend to migrate to big citieswhere the living conditions are probably better than their hometowns. This phenomenacalled urbanization perhaps has caused a number of serious troubles. Its two drawbacksmany people could easily recognize are that not only may the traffic system be declined but the standard of living would be deteriorated.First of all, once the traffic system in urban no longer afford huge transports taking placeeveryday, a lot of adverse effects could occur. Congestion might happen more often,especially, in rush hours when many means of transportations join together simultaneously. For instance, in Ho Chi Minh City, a city called the capital of economy,one of the cities in developing countries where urbanization come about with rapid...
