Capitalizing on the modern era of urbanization
1 June 2017

While the global population is expected to increase by 2.5 billion people, the percentage of that population residing in urban areas will grow from 54% to 66% by 2050. This massive shift towards urbanization creates huge challenges for policymakers and municipal authorities, and rich opportunities for companies and entrepreneurs offering solutions to urban management problems. Particularly as cities and economies compete for skilled talent, creating a comfortable urban environment is now a national strategic priority. What are some of the key smart city innovations and solutions that can have an impact on urban management and how should boardrooms respond to these massive demographic trends? How can national identity be maintained while seeking to concentrate human and technological potential in urban areas at a time of economic globalization? How can we make all cities in the country, regardless of their size, more comfortable and attractive for living?
