The notion that homelessness can be unrooted, rather than controlled, embodies a fundamental shift in expectations that has taken place over the past century. Cleveland and many large cities in the US have plans to uproot homelessness, but housing instability is an accentuated reality. Also, the diversity of the homeless groups, such as veterans, youth, and families, makes tackling the problem difficult. Although ending homelessness is a big challenge, it is not impossible. Meeting the solvable social ill involves interdisciplinary, focused response, and innovation.
Many articles has been published worldwide clearly stating the affordability crisis in today’s world when it comes to urban housing. 50 years ago standard of living was also a major constrain in the urban housing. But now that has been almost eliminated or as can be said there are perfect examples for how to avoid the substandard living conditions. The low cost housing is still a major leap to be covered as the cost of material and cost of labor goes on increasing day by day, and thus owning a house is becoming more and more difficult especially for the middle class and the working class. Adding to the woes the recession and its aftermaths are still taking its tolls, however strong the denial is.
First, he explains that the so-called “poverty trap” is not the cause of poor nations’ slow or nonexistent growth, despite the claims of foreign aid organizations. Easterly argues instead that bad governments and their interference with their economies may be the reason for many countries’ slow growth. To fix this problem, many aid organizations attempt to assist poor nations by restructuring their economic institutions from the top down. However, Easterly claims that these attempts have shown to be futile time and time again. He argues that this is because restructuring an entire economy from the top down is almost always bound to fail.

Alan Berube, senior fellow of the Metropolitan Policy Program, believes that cities fail to equate wages owing to the fact that they are home to the highest value jobs in sectors like finance, professional services, education and technology . I believe that the latter is justified, as uneducated city residents are restricted to extremely lowly paid job opportunities. Hence, compelled to remain at the bottom of the social ladder. Mr. Alan further strains that cities contain relatively more subsidised housing, unemployment benefits and services for the poor . You must all be wondering how does that create income inequality, right?
Urban areas can become important ally for long term sustainability also history has proven that fertility decline has always occurred first and quickest in cities, making urbanization a potent ally in fertility reduction efforts (Guzman et al., 2009). 2.3. Violence and security “While the marked decrease in population growth in many countries and regions is good news for those concerned about global population, it offers no clear relief for concerns about the security implications of population change.” (Goldstone, 2002). Violent conflict is mainly driven by disputes over a shared natural resource due to population growth, as such if government help is ineffective in attempt to remedy the situation violent conflict may surface.

Political parties can have massive setbacks when attempting to implement public policies regarding the issue of lack of shelter in Toronto. A disadvantage of a political party is their dispersed focus on social welfare and programs (Ross, 2017). While the housing crisis is a major problem in large cities, such as Toronto and Vancouver, the Liberal government must also focus their time, money, and energy on other sectors, such as the Universal Child Care Benefit or low-income support (Ross, 2017).

Dubai did not consider the timing aspect in planning and implementation of transformation of Dubai " Managing in a time of impermanence is no easy feat. To compete, businesses need to refine organizational processes and leverage institutional and outside knowledge more effectively" (EMC 2009, p.11) Overall, that everything that Sheikh Mohammed did was to ensure that Dubai had economy that was sustainable despite of the negatives of his
Thus, there is some debate on whether the contribution of migration to urban growth is declining or not. Kundu (2003, 2009 and 2011) has repeatedly argued that this is the case owing to policies promoting ‘exclusionary urbanization’. He also points out that the three mega cities of Mumbai, Kolkata and Delhi have shown low rates of growth in this decade. He further argues that in any case the data does not show that cities are likely to be inundated by poorer migrants. Given the low overall contribution of migration, and declining natural increase, it has been argued that further impetus to urbanization can only come from urban reconfiguration.
