12 Days of COPmas, Day 11: Sustainable cities
Currently, just over half of the human population live in cities and other urban areas.
Extraordinarily, the UN forecast that, by the year 2050, approximately two thirds (66%) of the world’s population will live in these areas. Cities can of course be very sustainable places to live – densely packed, efficient use of space, good public transport infrastructure – but only if they are designed and constructed with sustainability and resilience in mind!
To have any chance of containing our temperature rise within the 2 degrees target, we need to focus on making our cities of the future models of sustainability.
