Harnessing Urbanization for Growth and Poverty Alleviation

Este es uno de los archivos de video que recibí en el Foro Urbano Mundial en Río hace unos días, en total es un CD/Biblioteca Virtual/Virtual Library del Banco Mundial: Desarrollo Urbano y Gobierno Local.
Urbanization is a defining phenomenon of this century, and the developing world is the locus of this demographic transformation. From the earliest times, cities have been centers of democracy, creativity, and economic activity. Succesful cities change their ways, improve their finances, attract private investors, and take care of the poor. The World Bank supports governments at all levels to make cities more equitable, efficient, sustainable, and environmentally friendly.
