Urban Change in Newly Emerging Economies: Case Studies

Newly Emerging Economies (NEEs) are countries that are rapidly growing and industrialising. As these countries transition from mainly rural to increasingly urban societies, they face unique problems and opportunities.

In your exams, you’ll need to use specific examples to showcase your understanding of these issues. We’re going to explore two common NEE case studies often selected by schools. These examples not only cover the complexities of urbanisation but also the creative strategies used to address them.

As you look through the case studies, consider how they compare to urban experiences in the UK, and what similarities and differences you might find. Understanding these case studies gives you a window into the dynamic changes occurring in parts of the world that are rapidly evolving.
