One hundred years ago, the largest city in the world was London, with a population of approximately 6.5 million. However, nowadays, numerous cities have populations of 10 million or more. According to a statistical report by the United Nations, the world’s population is approximately 7 billion, 50% of whom live in cities. This figure is predicted to exceed 65% by 2050. The number of mega-cities with populations in excess of 10 million, such as Tokyo, Delhi, Seoul, Shanghai, Mumbai, Mexico City, Beijing, London, Paris, and New York, has already exceeded 30. The ongoing dramatic increase in population densities places a heavy burden on city infrastructures, local resources, and public security.
