Challenges and opportunities of rural transformation
Forced migration also known as forced displacement has caused millions of people around the world to be uprooted, including refugees, internally displaced persons, and migrants. There are technical differences between refugees, migrants, and internally-displaced persons. By definition, all fall under the category of forced migration and of course all of them are people! Forced migration refers to the movements that refugees, migrants, and IDPs make. These can be either within their country or between countries after being displaced from their homeland.
However, urban settings are a relatively new phenomenon in human history. This transition has transformed the way we live, work, travel and build networks. This entry presents an overview of urbanization across the world, extending from the distant past, to present, and projections of future trends. For most of human history, most people across the world lived in small communities. Over the past few centuries — and particularly in recent decades — this has shifted dramatically. There has been a mass migration of populations from rural to urban areas.

National Population Policy of April Experience over the last couple of decades in Ethiopia has shown that as human numbers increased, the population carrying capacity of the environment decreased. A high population growth rate induces increased demand for resources and the rate at which these resources are exploited. As a consequence of this, climatic conditions are becoming erratic and soil quality is declining at an alarming rate. The country was ravaged by both man made and natural disasters. The proportion of land with forest cover has been diminishing at alarming rates. The land area covered by forests has gone down from approximately
Human population growth and the demographic transition
Chukwuedozie K. Ajaero, Patience C. This paper examined the effects of rural-urban migration on the rural communities of Southeastern Nigeria.
There is a long-standing dispute on the extent to which population growth causes environmental degradation. Most studies on this link have so far analyzed cross-country data, finding contradictory results. However, these country-level analyses suffer from the high level of dissimilarity between world regions and strong collinearity of population growth, income, and other factors.
The Effect of Population Growth on the Environment: Evidence from European Regions
The world and most regions and countries are experiencing unprecedentedly rapid demographic change. The most obvious example of this change is the huge expansion of human numbers: four billion have been added since Projections for the next half century expect a highly divergent world, with stagnation or potential decline in parts of the developed world and continued rapid growth in the least developed regions. Other demographic processes are also undergoing extraordinary change: women's fertility has dropped rapidly and life expectancy has risen to new highs.
A slum is usually a highly populated urban residential area consisting mostly of closely packed, decrepit housing units in a situation of deteriorated or incomplete infrastructure, inhabited primarily by impoverished persons. Due to increasing urbanization of the general populace, slums became common in the 18th to late 20th centuries in the United States and Europe. Slums form and grow in different parts of the world for many different reasons. Causes include rapid rural-to-urban migration, economic stagnation and depression, high unemployment, poverty, informal economy, forced or manipulated ghettoization, poor planning, politics, natural disasters, and social conflicts. It is thought  that slum is a British slang word from the East End of London meaning "room", which evolved to "back slum" around meaning 'back alley, street of poor people.
