Abstract: As the world population increases, an increasing number of people are now living cities. This urban growth of cities will affect how the different countries cope with changes. However, contrary to popular believes, urban growth is not linear and can be affected by different resources and behaviour of the citizens. The need for a study on urbanisation is crucial as some countries have to face natural catastrophe. This help the government to plan ahead for the population size of the country in future. The Pearl River Delta region is prone to typhoon and other storm related natural catastrophe. The scope of this study is restricted to both Hong Kong and Macau, the two most densely populated countries in the world. Using a suitable urban growth model, a study on how the resources and the population correlates. With this knowledge, current data on the different resources and population size can be extrapolated to find the trend of urban growth of the two countries. However, due to the limited range, variety and availability of the data of the resources, there is some restriction on getting a dominant trend in urban growth.
