World Cities Report 2020: The Value of Sustainable Urbanization

UN Habitat : 2020

Cities are growing across the world playing the role of economic engines and offering opportunities for people to improve the quality of their lives. This report shows that the intrinsic value of sustainable urbanization can and should be harnessed for the wellbeing of all. The Report provides evidence and policy analysis of the value of urbanization from an economic, social and environmental perspective, including the unquantifiable value that gives cities their unique character; and also explores the role of innovation and technology, local governments, targeted investments and the effective implementation of the New Urban Agenda in fostering the value of sustainable urbanization.
