How has urbanization affected Morocco?
The desert nation of Morocco has had its urban areas more than double in size in recent decades. This has brought about unemployment and a major increase in air and water pollution.
As the Industrial Revolution picked up speed, the number of people living on farms as opposed to the cities dwindled. Urbanization affected industrialization by supplying factories with a steady workforce as many people abandoned the farms and came to the cities seeking jobs working in the factories.
Rapid Urbanization greatly affected the lives of the citizens during the Industrial Revolution (negatively). The results of rapid urbanization caused poor living conditions, such as, poorly made homes, no sewage system, small living space (due to families forced to live together), and pollution, which resulted in unsanitary health. These places are now known as 'slums'.
In the developing world there was great pride in knowing everyone in town, hardly no violence and marriage at an early age to the boy or girl next door. Urbanization caused a growth in number of cities and people who went to the cities looking for work. This caused pollution, overcrowding, violence and the dream in children to travel away from the home to these big new cities.
