The Fundamentals of Urbanization Evidence base for Policy Making
This report provides the reader with compelling evidences drawn from the UN-Habitat Sample of 200 cities showing that urban planning and design is declining globally. It demonstrates that cities are expanding endlessly to peripheries on a pattern of low residential densities and fragmented urbanization, with housing becoming unaffordable by either home ownership or rental. The report brings forward key propositions to establish the fundamentals of planned and sustainable urbanization. It is a must reading for urban practitioners and policy makers.
