The interior of the continental Southeast Asia (Mekong) and the large islands, especially Borneo, which is covered with contiguous tropical rainforests, is increasingly being developed and populated. The population density is increasing in these areas.

The concentration of large metropolises is striking in South and East Asia. In the 2014 ranking of the world’s largest agglomerations, the top places were occupied by metropolitan regions in Asia. These include Tokyo, Jakarta, Delhi, Seoul, Mumbai, Manila and Shanghai. All of these cities – and many others across the region – have increased their population figures by double or more in the past decade or two, and sometimes even faster.

The main cause of this explosive growth was the great migration flow of our time, the rural-urban migration. This type of internal migration, since it is largely uncontrolled, leads to phenomena that can be seen in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, but also in other countries. Many people live in slums there. In Calcutta alone, with its approx. 4.5 million residents – around 14.1 million people live in the entire agglomeration – this affects around a third of the city’s population, according to estimates. The slums are no longer just on the outskirts of the cities, but increasingly also in the centers. For more information about the continent of Asia, please check
