  Across the spectrum of development, it is somewhere in the middle, and therefore the challenges it faces are broadly representative of much of the developing world’s challenges. A World Bank report on the state of the labor market in developing countries provides an enlightening description of South Africa’s predicament.

Much of global urbanisation is due to rural-urban migration. Such growth is especially commonplace today in developing countries, where job opportunities and levels of pay are far higher in urban areas than they are in rural areas. Rural to urabn migration has been happening in the UK since the industrial revolution in the 18th and 19th centuries.   Population Growth and Rapid Urbanization in the Developing World examines trends, challenges, issues and strategies adopted by developing countries in the face of population growth and rapid urbanization and its impact on urban environments. The book explores patterns of population growth and urbanization, use of different governance approaches.
