Welcome to "Megacities-Megachallenge"!

This is the webpage of the Priority Program 1233 "Megacities-Megachallenge - Informal Dynamics of Global Change" funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

Primary research areas were the process dynamics of global change, mega-urbanisation and informal phenomena and their relationships and interactions.

The program was running over 8 years, from 2006-2014 and has been concluded. 11 interdisciplinary project teams were conducting research in the Pearl River Delta (China) and Dhaka (Bangladesh).
