The mega cities are the engines of economic growth; but at the same time they also lead to inequality poverty and global warming. This book discusses the urban landscape of South Asia with an emphasis on the role of mega cities in furthering socioeconomic development in the region. It analyses the urban growth processes in the region in the context of regional geography population growth economic development and technological environment. Deliberating on the current urbanisation process it tries to initiate a dialogue on how South Asian countries can learn from each other to resolve the problems specific to their region. Furthermore the authors underline the policies that the national governments may follow in order to ensure organic development of the cities.
