Safer Cities Promotional Booklet
It is projected that by 2030, two-thirds of humanity will be living in towns and cities around the world. Another feature of the new urban age is that the global number of slum dwellers is now set to top the 1 billion mark. At this turning point in history, UN-HABITAT surveys show crime and fear of crime to be perhaps the most influential factors in our daily lives dictating where we choose to live, how to behave, where to go, and where to work.
