For example in
Beijing (China)
where millions
of the poor
people cook
with coal.

• Traffic is a major problem in
all large cities.

Thailand.
Bangkok
(Thailand)
has huge
congestion
problems,
1000
deaths a
year from
accidents
An average speed of less than 10
mph- and it has had a 24- hour
traffic jam!
Shelter.
• Everyone needs a shelter. Millions
of people around the world are
living in poor quality housing or
homemade shelters

millions of people suffer from damp conditions, disease,
unclean water and a lack of sewage systems
Poverty.
• Poverty is the biggest
problem of all, and the
biggest killer.

Money can buy food, clean
water and medicine, which
will enable people to survive
even in poor quality living
conditions.
Pollution
• Pollution comes from vehicles, industrial
processes, cooking and heating.
The rapid increase in the number of vehicles in Mexico City is putting
children at risk.

Pollution is everywhere- in the air, in the water, and on the land.
Half the
people in
Calcutta
(India) have
some sort
of
respiratory
problem.
Sewerage Systems.
• Sewerage systems are
needed to deal with human
waste, but many of these
systems fail to keep up with
the rapidly expanding cities.
Development
schemes struggle
to keep up.

Many cities have
only open sewers
or pits.
Where they do exist,
as in Cairo (Egypt) or
Bangkok (Thailand),
they become
overburdened as the
population increases.
Drugs, Gangs and violence.
• Drugs, gangs and
violence are part of
everyday life in many
shanty settlements.

Picture from cbc.ca
The police may
or may not have
control of
squatter
settlements, and
keeping control
in these areas
may lead to
violence
Often as in some
towns in Brazil, the
shanties are under the
control of drug gangs.

Education and Heath.
• Education and health
provision are two of the
most important items for
city planners to manage.
Even when
children get a
primary school
education, as
most children do,
in Sao Paulo (Brazil)
those from the
towns are more
likely to drop out
when they are still
very young and not
move into paid
employment

Overcrowding.

• Overcrowding is a problem in most cities, but
especially affects the poorest people.
Shanty towns and squatter settlements are the most
densely populated parts of any LEDC city.
Rubbish Overload.
Rubbish collection is often unregulated and
haphazard.
Some very poor people can make
money from other people’s rubbish
by recycling items thrown into the
city’s rubbish tips.

CLEAN drinking water.
• Access to clean drinking water
varies across the world, the
poorest people have the least
reliable supplies, and they may
have to buy it at high prices.
Image from glabalaid.net
Image from kimandjackson.com
wealthy areas tend to have better
supplies.

Employment
• Employment opportunities cannot
keep up with the number of new
arrivals in most LEDC cities.

Many people make a subsistence living by
street trading, selling food and other
services
Making craft
items, often
for the
tourist
industry.
Rubbish in Mexico city.
12,500 tones worth of waste.
Mexico city
has the 3rd
biggest
problem of
rubbish in the
world.

375 Hectors
worth of
waste.
12 meters high.
The solution is to burn
the waste but this can
cause many different
problems. Burning the
waste will cause air born
problems which could
lead to cancer.

Water in Mexico City.
20 million people come in a
day and they can’t provide
enough water for everyone.

In Mexico city there are
many leaking pipes which
means water is leaking
away.
Many people without
water get given water
in barrels, each barrel
has 20 liters, this has
to last at least a week
for large families.
Pollution in Mexico City.
Picture from weirdlyodd.com
Pollution in Mexico started
in the 1990’s. they shut
down many factories to try
and stop the pollution but
realized they were too late.
Cars with a certain number plate
wern’t aloud to drive on certain days.
For example with a number 2 on the
end would mean they wouldn't be
aloud to drive on a Tuesday.

They made the public transport places like
subways and busses better and more
convenient so that there are not as many
cars driving at `once.
Communities in Mexico City.

There are many homes that are illegal if
you stay in an illegal home without being
asked to move then that land is now
yours.
The houses are on step slopes because
they are the few spaces left. This is bad
because when it rains a lot it can wash
away the house.
Image from cdn.wn.com
Houses are made from anything
they can find like strings and paper
and cardboard. They don’t put
there money into the housing until
the land is yours.
Thank you for watching (: :)
