Megacities are new urban phenomena, results of globalisation and subject
to as well as motors of global ecological, socio-economic, and political
change. New are the dimensions of growth, concentrations of population,
infrastructure, economic power and decisions – and the simultaneous,
self-energising acceleration processes of development. But one must be
wary of generalised statements since differences of economic performance,
social coherence, infrastructure conditions and governance structures
should not be ignored: The publication aims at analysing current
transformation processes of Yangon/Myanmar, as spearhead of national
development, bridge to Southeast Asia and the world.
