Why do people move to the cities? What are the causes and consequences of this drift?

A lot of people emigrate from the country to the city. This drift has a lot of causes as well as effects.

      The first cause, in my opinion, is drought. Severe droughts have not only ruined the crops in Morocco but also left people with very little or no water for them and for their crops and animals. So, lack of water in the country means unemployment.

      Secondly, work is hard in the country because poor peasants have no machinery. Most of them work more than ten hours a day and do not have any vacation at all.

      Thirdly, there is a shortage in schools in the Moroccan country side. That's why the farmers prefer to move to the city so as to give their children good education.

      Fourthly, the country in Morocco lacks good infrastructure and services. There is no electricity, no roads, no hospitals, no recreational or sporting facilities…

      Because of all these and other things a lot of people prefer to drift toward the cities. This immigration has, however, a lot of consequences. Among these are: these people often settle in the outskirts of the cities where housing is not adequate: no electricity, or tap water, or hygiene.

      Also children often find it hard to adapt to the city life and may not continue their education in crowded classes in the outskirts of the cities where these families settle. So, they drop out of school and turn to drugs, crimes, and violence.

      Transportation, as well, is a problem here. Buses and taxies are often crowded and uncomfortable. So these immigrants just jump "from the frying pan into the fire"

      To conclude, I think, providing people in the country with good infrastructure and creating jobs for them in the country is the only way to encourage people to stay there.
