The State of Arab Cities Report 2022

The State of Arab Cities report covers various issues that currently characterise the Arab region. The report presents the state of urbanisation in the region, with its key drivers and urbanisation trends and explores a selection of major challenges and opportunities in the region. The report then presents the need for a paradigm shift in urban infrastructure, illustrating emerging infrastructure opportunities that could contribute towards building a more sustainable future for cities, and focuses on the stronger multilateral governance to further sustainable development. Finally, the report summarises a number of key recommendations at the regional, national and city level.
