Economic growth in cities invite the peripheral rural towns and village population to come and settle in urban cities to taste the pie of economic growth that is not available in rural regions. A hope for better life and financial growth makes the rural population come and settle in urban cities creating new challenges for city councils for accommodating them all. The access to finance being prominent in urban cities makes rural population to frequent urban cities to gain access to finance and support their personal needs (McDonald, David A). Increasing population is an important unstoppable factor affecting global cities in terms of wanting more relocation spaces, more land reforms, and a rising stress on agriculture and other resources. Free movement of capital and manpower is a great force behind the way in which city moulds itself and finds new needs to grow sustainably, especially in ways which is conducive to the new immigrants, and to accommodate their concerns (“Ten Factors Affecting Canada’s Economic Performance In 2015”).
Recent influx of refugees in European countries, UK, Canada, US, and Australia are affecting the rise and conduct of global cities. The demand of economic growth with equitable distribution of resources is becoming more difficult as there never arises a halt in the movement of people from countries to another. For example, China and India have been facing challenges in their metro cities Beijing and Mumbai to accommodate migrants and also deliver justice to existing and new citizens (Zhao, Pengjun). The city council faces growth issues because the affecting factors never remain static to conclude a single framework of model development. Distribution of basic necessities, namely education, healthcare, senior care, and insurance for the poor becomes increasingly difficult to offer, more so for the countries like India who does not have adequate social security products and services. This causes inequality to rise and thus, the income distribution goes wrong giving rise to urban slums and excessive rich communities.
