The historical past of urbanization and of the cities and towns it encompasses is a historical past of political power and financial success. The spatial distribution of cities and cities is in effect the geography of the non-agricultural economy since it’s where industrial and service enterprises have chosen to locate. It can additionally be a map of where people working outdoors agriculture, forestry or fishing make a dwelling. The Department has gazetted the Preservation and Development of Agricultural Land Framework and Forestry Laws Amendment Bills in order to enhance forestry and natural assets administration. The function of the PDALF is to efficiently and successfully protect and develop agricultural land to ensure sustainable long-term food security and job creation.

Kolkata , Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Seoul, Chennai and Cairo are among the many different massive cities that, by 2000, had several million fewer inhabitants than had been predicted.
