Disaster risk linked to urbanization in the developing world

Read Andrew C. Revkin's report in the New York Times here. Like an article that I have forthcoming in the Michigan Journal of International Law, these just-released reports question the wisdom of what I call the "urban juggernaut" in the developing world by pointing out some of its negative consequences. While these reports focus on natural disasters, my article focuses on aspects of ecological sustainability in the face of rapid urbanization.
