Since becoming the capital of Iran 200 years ago, Tehran has grown to be one of the large cities of the world. During this period, it has attracted people and resources from a vast territory and has become a considerable node in the global economy. This huge concentration of people and resources, however, has suffered from many social and environmental problems. Solving the city's mounting problems would best be undertaken through its citizens engaging in decision making and in the provision of necessary resources.
