FACTS AND FIGURES
By 2050, two-thirds of the world’s population — 6.2 billion people — will live in urban cities. In other words, we will see rapid urban growth and urbanisation.
Traffic congestion is a longstanding challenge for urban areas in developing countries. Apart from causing mobility problems, it damages human health through air pollution.
One in seven people — a total of 1 billion — live in informal settlements and self-built homes which are of poor quality. This number is assumed to grow to 3 billion in 2050.
The fastest growing urban settlements are not megacities with more than 10 million inhabitant, but the medium-sized and smaller cities that house less than 1 million.
The city has the task of ensuring healthy living and working environments, and provide infrastructure for clean water, sanitation and waste management.
Better planning, integrated design and instrumental technologies are transforming cities, where cities become more “walkable”, “green”, “smart”, safe and resilient.
