This Working Papers contain preliminary research, analysis, findings, and recommendations. They are circulated to stimulate timely discussion and critical feedback and to influence ongoing debate on emerging issues. Most working papers are eventually published in another form and their content may be revised.
With the world’s urban population expected to increase by about 60 percent by 2050, we have an opportunity to build cities where everyone can live, move, and thrive.1 There is an emerging global consensus that we must work towards cities that provide a high quality of life for all. Achieving this outcome is not guaranteed. It requires a new vision of how to build and manage cities. The decisions cities make today are crucial because they could lock us into a cycle of low productivity, poverty, and environmental degradation for the rest of the century and beyond.
