The reading this week is by Mike Davis, and is titled Planet of Slums. Mike Davis creates an argument on how slums are a worldly issue that is spreading. Davis first begins his argument with statistics based on the monumental increase of population in all countries across the globe. He also uses examples of the increase of hypercities and megacities due to intensified urbanization in Mexico-city, Seoul-Injon, and New York. Which leads into the effects on the citizens, such as China and India, and the lack of proper housing and accommodations with such a rapidly growing population.
In the early modern period, English agriculture passed through a series of changes which led to higher productivity per unit of labour, increased yields, lower share of the workforce involved in agriculture and faster advancement than in other countries. Increased productivity in agriculture implies greater growth in urbanisation rates. This is proven by historical data referring to the differential of change in urbanisation rate between 1500 and 1800. The urban population of England increased almost 7-fold, while average Western Europe urbanisation rate only doubled. Additionally, in that period workforce involved in agriculture dropped from 75% to 43% in England, while in France and Germany dropped from 75% to 61-64%.
That number today is estimated to be around 15% (Jordan Urbanization), indicating that an overwhelming majority of Jordanian’s, refugees and asylum seekers have moved to the cities. This rapid urbanization has put considerable strain on infrastructure, which translates to higher costs for the government and inhabitants. Specifically, these costs are sourced from increased pressure on housing, food and basic amenities such as water, with the most overall danger being increased and rapid inflation (Higget). So as a result of water’s scarcity, Jordanians are abandoning living in rural societies and moving to cities that can offer more water and a different lifestyle. This has attributed to rapid urbanization, which has put considerable pressures on the government and citizens economically.

Rapid urbanization along with increasing industrial, economic and commercial development, have given rise to an increased generation of various types of waste. The amount of waste generation rates is related with the socio-economic development, degree of industrialization and climate. Generally, the larger the economic growth and increase in the percentage of urban population, the greater amount of solid waste is produced. For the municipal planners, n recent years, the management of solid waste continues to be one of the major issues due to rise in population levels. Without damaging the ecosystem and human population, planners are thus forced to consider alternate and available means of waste management.
