Mega-Cities illustrates nine creative solutions
for urban problems put forth by the Planning Group of the Los Angeles
Mega-Cities Project. By the year 2000, more than half of the world's population will live in cities.
It is projected that 23 of these cities will be "mega-cities" with more than 10 million people each.
Despite their varying political, economic,
social and cultural characteristics, all of them face a common
problem. Cities must be viable for unprecedented numbers of
citizens, yet function within limited budgets and severe environmental
constraints. Here we see urban leadership programs which teach
neighborhood activists to replicate successful projects and
to incorporate them into urban policy. The Planning Group has
field site teams in 20 cities on five continents and is a leader
in innovative solutions to urban problems. Descriptions and
locations of projects included.
