The urban growth is becoming a challenging situation live by every country of the world. Indeed since few decades the world sees its global population growing. Therefore issues such as food availability arise and threatening this planet. Government as China, who is one of the countries of the world with an important number of inhabitants, more than a million inhabitants (Wolf 2011:26). China, has already implemented some measures to tackle this phenomenon, in authorizing one child per family (Perry and Selden 2000). Unfortunately this rapid growth of the population has other impact such as urbanization (Zhang 2002). For the year 1920, 24 cities of the world were counting more than one million inhabitants (Desai and Potter 2002). However this number became bigger in 1980 with 198 cities having more than one million inhabitants (Desai and Potter 2002). Nevertheless this is a growing issue that touches particularly the developing world, which at the opposite of the industrialized countries; observes a more rapid and huge proportion of urbanization in their regions (Zhang 2002). In addition, the fact is more important for these countries, as that most developed countries are already affected by a high level of poverty and see the gap rich poor getting more serious in their countries. This paper will investigate on the impact of the urbanization in the biodiversity, ecosystem and land use, in India.

Communication is essential to tackle these negative impacts previously seen, should be done to the country. Nevertheless, UN should intervene to try to minimize this situation, because without the developed countries and their colonization nothing all of that would have happened (Chatterjee and Nankervis 2007).

VII. Conclusion

Urbanization is source of economic advantages but is also source of disparities within the population. Being united, will make things change. Nonetheless, the Indian culture and the cast system will make the adoption of this measure difficult.
