What do you think a good third world city or a major city in a poor developing country would be a good one to write an urbanization report and trends on? I have to have a major city in the country? I just want advice if anyone knows what one would be good to research and write a report on, honeslty I have never been out of the U.S. and am not up to date on current countries? Thoughts, city's country's?

The poorest countries are considered "least developed" countries. Most are in Africa. The developing countries list is longer.
Since I've spent about 4 weeks in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam, in the last 15 years, I suggest you choose that city. The country has made a lot of changes -- but Saigon doesn't seem to have changed much.

Ho Chi Minh City is the official name, but many people still use the old name, Saigon.
I suggest you research Vietnam and other countries to see which are growing primarily by urbanization.
