Abstract

We live in an urbanizing world. Since 2008, more than half of humanity lives in cities, both largeand small, and old and new. We also live in a world that is becoming even more urbanized, it isexpected that by 2050, 66 percent of the world’s population will live in cities [1]. The process of urbanization, accompanied by the rapid expansion of cities and the sprawling growth of metropolitanregions over the world, is one of the most important transformations of a natural landscape.
