   schema:description "In this collection of essays, seven authors discuss issues concerning urbanization and urban poverty, including patterns of urbanization, the characteristics of the urban poor, their access to housing and social and physical infrastructure, aspects of the labor market, and the urban physical environment. The essays highlight the importance of broad-based economic growth, investment in human capital, and well-designed antipoverty programs."@en ;
   schema:description "While urbanization, which is an integral part of the development process, presents opportunities and new possibilities, the problems it poses are often formidable and more acute and complex than problems in the rural areas. Urban problems are usually more intense and highly charged and can often lead to social and political instability. There tends to be a higher sense of deprivation and demoralization in the city than in the countryside, despite generally higher living standards. Urban poverty is commonly both a major cause and consequence of urban problems."@en ;
