A 21st Century Challenge
By 2050, more than 75% of the world’s population will be living in cities.
Mckinsey Global Institute estimates that 60% of the cities that we will need by 2050 do not exist today. Countries around the world will need to double their urban infrastructure within the next 40 years, while at the same time providing people with a high quality of life. Urban problems such as air pollution, terrorism, congestions and informal settlements may escalate if actions are not adequate.
