Poverty & Urbanism Marching in Lockstep

'This year, for the first time in history, a majority of the world's people will live in cities. Global population growth will continue to concentrate in urban centers of the developing world, which will absorb more than two billion new residents over the next two decades. The pace of urbanization far exceeds the rate at which basic services can be provided, and the consequences for the urban poor have been dire. Global poverty has increasingly become an urban phenomenon.'
--from a cover story in the current issue of the Georgetown Journal of International Affairs
