Define a magacity
A megacity is a very large city with a really big population , mostly over 10 million people.
Evaluate the challenges of HIC's and LIC's
The Challenge of a HIC is that many countries with this challenge could potentially run out of money.
The challenge of a LIC is for the country tying to find more money so that they could benefit from this and help make the things/recourses that they need. E.G. Schools, Hospitals etc.
Why is rural and urban migration only happening in HIC's
It is only happening in HIC's because people are building houses and wanting people to move into them so there will be less people on the streets.
I think that would be able to see features in sustainable cities. e.g. They have much greenery, and they have many great buildings that look very big and very pretty.
