Megadisasters In Megacities
"Megacities have a population of 10 million or more and a dense concentration of people, many of them in slums.
'Some of the megacities are earthquake prone, others are prone to flooding, etcetra. We have to have city planning, we have to have development, we have to have investment in the poor areas, because the poor people now are the most vulnerable,'" says Jan Egeland, the U.N. Director of Disaster Relief.
