In a garden sit the aged Kublai Khan and the young Marco Polo—Tartar emperor and Venetian traveler. Kublai Khan has sensed the end of his empire coming soon. Marco Polo diverts the emperor with tales of the cities he has seen in his travels around the empire: cities and memory, cities and desire, cities and designs, cities and the dead, cities and the sky, trading cities, hidden cities. Soon it becomes clear that each of these fantastic places is really the same place.

Leveraging the Potential of Argentine Cities: A Framework for Policy Action (Directions in Development)

Argentina’s path to economic prosperity is through efficient, sustainable and economically thriving cities. Not only are cities a spatial concentration of people, but also they generate agglomeration economies by concentrating ideas, talent, and knowledge. Argentina is one of the most urbanized countries in Latin America, with 90 percent of Argentine people currently living in cities. Argentina’s cities are geographically and economically diverse, and its largest urban area – Metropolitan Buenos Aires – is one of Latin America’s urban giants.

From Oil to Cities: Nigeria's Next Transformation (Directions in Development)

From Oil to Cities: Nigeria's Next Transformation (Directions in Development) by The World Bank
English | July 15, 2016 | ISBN: 1464807922 | 229 Pages | PDF | 7 MB

Nigeria s cities already home to 85 million people are expected to double that number in 30 years. Even in the best of times, this rate of growth would challenge the provision of sufficient land, finance, infrastructure, and other services. Yet the country is also grappling with the dramatic plunge in world oil prices. Bustling urban centers, when well served, can boost economic growth and slash poverty. To seize that opportunity, Nigeria needs to implement significant and urgent reforms.

Despite impressive economic growth and increasing prosperity, cities in Mexico do not seem to have fully captured the benefits of urban agglomeration, in part because of rapid and uncoordinated urban growth. Recent expansion of many Mexican cities has been distant, disconnected, and dispersed, driven mainly by large single-use housing developments on the outskirts of cities.
