Latin American cities have a real opportunity to take off in the 21st century. Brazil is a rich country for example, the ratio of arable land to population is seventeen times that of China where only the poor can be seen, while China is a poor country where extreme poverty is much less visible. As a result, they have sometimes unintentionally reinforced exclusion and segmentation. Today, more than 42 major Latin American cities have mass transit systems and another have bike lanes. Latin America is one of the most biodiverse regions of the world, yet it is still understudied.

Sprawling Latin American cities often suffer from low physical, social and digital connectivity, and high fragmentation. The English, just as they did in Australia and New Zealand, proceeded immediately to the total genocide of the indigenous population. The formation of these massive cities, home to 65 million, raises problems for regional cooperation. The very rich and the very poor live—or survive—only from oil rents. The region, apart from having a high level of urbanization compared to incomehas a higher level in the countries where there is more infrastructure and capital. Service Provision.

However, countries in the Latin America and Caribbean region appear to depart significantly from the rest of the world in these two basic relationships. Although Latin America has huge expanses of territory, nowhere else has achieved this level of urbanisation. Latin American countries currently spend a smaller share of GDP on infrastructure than any other region, with the exception of sub-Saharan Africa. But certain conditions are needed for this to become a reality.

In spite of the positive data on its development and growth, urbanization continues to be concentrated in a very limited number of cities.
