How does intensified urbanisation affect society
Urbanization is a process whereby populations move from rural to urban area, enabling cities and towns to grow. Therefore, as populations move to more developed areas (towns and cities) the immediate outcome is urbanization.
Employment: Rural areas commonly are agricultural. Urbanization and industrial growth create opportunities for jobs that pay more, are more diverse, and may be less physically demanding.
Industrial Growth: The explosion of industrialization and manufacturing enterprises within a certain urban area gives rise to more employment opportunities — which is another factor of urbanization.
Social Factors: Many urban areas allow for better living standards, including superior educational facilities, better access to healthcare, modern housing, and more recreational activities.
Economic Problems: Many people may choose to migrate from a world area, as it is generally not as economically stable or wealthy as a booming urban city.
Political Turmoil: War, civil unrest, and other sources of political disorder often are woes of developing areas. This turbulence — and potential danger — can be enough to make anyone want to move.
Modernization: New technology upgrades the infrastructure of urban areas. Better communication, medical facilities, and various social amenities can attract those from rural areas.
