GEOGRAPHY CHAPTER ONE
From Rural to Urban Spaces
Urbanisation refers to the process of moving to, living in and the growth of towns and cities.
Towns and cities cover 119 000 km2 or 20% of metropolitan territory and 95% of the French population live in an urban area or under the influence of an urban area. Paris is the most populated city in France and the average population density across the country as a whole is 118 inhabitants per km2. Towns increasingly extend into the surrounding rural areas this is called urban sprawl. The countryside is diversifying into a living space, place of work and recreation for rural and urban dwellers alike.
