Experimental visualization of narrower problems
Other Names:
Nebulous city plans
Inadequate structural planning in built-up areas
Unplanned urban areas
Uncontrolled land development
Poorly managed urbanization
Nature:
Unplanned and poorly managed urban growth causes environmental stress. Because of their concentrated nature, urban centres are significant consumers of natural resources. Where they are poorly managed, the uncontrolled spread of towns and cities contributes to unsustainable production and consumption patterns. The resulting impacts on land and water resources and on the atmosphere can be severe. Moreover, poorly-managed cities lead to negative health and environmental impacts for residents.
