By continent: Asia is noted for decentralization and hierarchical plans; Africa for a high rate of urbanization; Europe for the loss of agricultural land, urban sprawl, and the renewal of inner cities; North America for suburbanization; and South America for high rates of population growth and migration to urban areas leading to homelessness. -A.Gilg
