Reasons for increased urban growth
There are many reasons for increased urban growth in the developing world. Some of which are:

increasing birth rates and decreasing death rates
improved health care in many developing countries leading to longer life expectancies
employment opportunities are greater within urban areas
better paid jobs in the cities, an expected higher standard of living, and more reliable food are all pull factors - reasons why people are attracted to the city
people who migrate to towns and cities tend to be young adults and therefore have higher birth rates
better medical conditions compared to the countryside mean more successful births and a better life expectancy
However, there are many problems associated with rapid growth. These include unplanned housing (squatter settlements/shanty towns), dealing with urban waste, pollution and stress on infrastructure and the city's services.
