5/19/2014; 58 minutes

The future of Mexico will be played out in its cities, where about 3/4 of the nation's 115 million inhabitants live. Many critical national policy concerns in Mexico are urban-- how to manage one of the world's largest mega-cities (Mexico City), along with the rapidly transforming and complex northern border cities. Lawrence A. Herzog, Professor of City Planning at San Diego State University and Visiting Professor at UC San Diego argues that three of the biggest challenges facing urban Mexico are globalization, environmental degradation, and the uncertain future of the urban periphery.
