“Poverty of Cities" which is a reflection of informal residing. The consequences of this fact due mainly to the unskilled villagers coming to cities increasingly and a failure in economic adjustment in 1980s that slowed down the rate of development resulted in an increase in the number of valnerable social levels especially in developing countries . Therefore the poverty center was gradually transferred and focused in to the big cities.

Mean while, the globalization reinforced the employment and economic activities in big cities in nationwide scales, and left a wonderful effect.

It is believed that achieving an economic development depends on reducing poverty in these areas.

This fact was stated and focused in Rio Meeting and Human Residing
