Abstract:

This paper has two principal objectives: (1) to provide a definition and listing of world megacities; and (2) to propose considerations for using transport and land use policy to facilitate economic growth and the reduction or eradication of poverty. In one form or another, this is a virtually universal objective, underlying public policies in nations around the world. Current transport and land use preferences are examined. It is generally observed that these current preferences may not best serve the economic interests of megacity residents, especially in medium-income and low-income megacities.
