Cairo - issues
Introduction - This section investigates the effects of urban growth in Cairo by watching the videos below, using a Flipboard magazine to find some actual examples and any textbooks on the subject. This should allow the production of a 'mind map' to illustrate these effects. Hopefully the 'mind map' will be produced using a web based application or package.
Watch the video above and make notes on the living conditions seen and how this has effected people lives.
