A number of cities in the world are currently being demolished as a result of war; cities in Syria, Iraq, Afganistan and South Sudan for example. New cities have been built with tents - in Lebanon, Jordan and Iran. There are a number of refugee cities around the world including Dadaab and Kakuma in northern Kenya and in a less formal way in Bogata, Colombia.
