Description: Urbanization is a dominant demographic trend and an important component of global land transformation. By 2005, slightly more than half the world's population will reside in cities, and by 2025 this figure is projected to rise to more than 60 percent of the world's population (Gottdiener and Hutchinson 2000). The developed nations have more urbanized populations; for example, close to 80 percent of the U.S. population is urban. Urbanization has also resulted in a dramatic rise in the size of cities: over three hundred cities have more than ten million inhabitants and fourteen megacities exceed one hundred million. The increasing population and spatial prominence of urban areas are significant reasons for turning our attention to the environmental management of cities and to ensure they are reasonable places to live in the future (Pickett et al. 2001).
