Later in the week on Thursday... we will also look at some of the other urban challenges facing many of the rapidly growing cities in other regions of the world. There is a document dropped in your APHG Folder called "Urbanized: Journey to Planet Earth". We'll watch the 25 minute video in class while you follow along answering the questions. There are additional helpful links at the bottom of this related to megacities, largest cities, and well-planned cities.
Use all of these cities as potential case-studies (hint, hint, hint...)
