    Megacities simultaneously offer the best of humanity and challenge us with the worst of human security problems.Cities are today the home to about half of all humanity and serve as uneasy hosts to a variety of less desirable facets. Cities bursting with millions of people battle crime, unemployment or underemployment, insufficient infrastructure including housing and sanitation, and exposure to natural disasters.
