Urbanization and Industrialization in Central Asia: Looking for solutions to key development problems
Central Asia is a dynamically growing region, but it faces a host of long-term challenges. Practicing the “concentration model” of urbanization, under which population and economic growth are centered in big cities, as the region becomes increasingly cognizant of the need to shift from an agrarian to an industrial-agrarian type of economy, Central Asian countries are having trouble handling the massive influx of people from underdeveloped areas. This economic transition requires better management of urbanization and industrialization processes.
