The urban situation cannot be dissociated from what is going on in the countryside. Part of the urban crisis is due to the stream of immigrants from rural areas where they are unable to earn even the most miserable living. An overall development strategy is clearly a pre-condition to successfully tackling the urban and the rural situation. However, focusing on greater food and energy self-reliance may offer a starting point to design and gradually implement an urban strategy inspired by the ecodevelopment approach.
