The Urban Progression: The Resilient Cities and their Transformation

The Urban Progression: The Resilient Cities and their Transformation | The Urban Progression | Scoop.it
Resilient Cities, Transformation of city spaces, Is resiliency enough?, What can be done to make cities resilient?, What is a resilient city?, Steps for forming resilient city, City as a system
Jepranshu Aganivanshi's insight:

Transformation substantially differs from resilience, where resilience maintains a current state, and transformation moves to a new one.  The problems facing urban systems are complex and complicated.  Wilkinson viewed cities as complex adaptive systems, similar to ecosystems, because they are constantly self-organizing and respond in varied ways to both internal interactions and the influence of external factors.  This similarity between urban environments and ecosystems is particularly evident when examining social stratification and inequity in urban areas.

Urbanization in Lagos, largest african urban region, development of nigeria, urbanization in Africa, megacities of the world, global cities of future, population explosion in Africa, demographic transition theory in Africa
Jepranshu Aganivanshi's insight:

Lagos sometimes assessed to as one of the filthiest capital city of the world could be developed efficiently and sustainable in some sense – the policies and regulations should be a mix of both short-term approach and long-term approach. Lagos is the centre of one of the largest urban areas in the world. With a population of around 1.4 million in 1970, its growth has been stupendous. Oil production, which began in the 1950's, increased seven-fold between 1965 and 1973, while world oil prices skyrocketed. By 1978, the metropolitan area accounted for 40% of the external trade of Nigeria, containing 40% of the national skilled population.

Jepranshu Aganivanshi's insight:

In our current globalized and urbanized world, waste production scale is also increasing with increasing per capita consumption. The level of the impact on environment of this increasing phenomenon may vary with the variation in different factors like geographical conditions, political will, lack of community participation, level of awareness of the society and others.
