Deterioration of the urban environment is a complex issue. Across cities of the developing world the myriad factors negatively effecting urban environments remain much the same and vary only in degree. Unregulated land use, urban sprawl and unplanned densification, inadequate treatment and disposal of wastes, burning of fossil fuels and other factors all cause environmental degradation.
