El mundo cada vez está más urbanizado. Desde 2007, más de la mitad de la población mundial ha estado viviendo en ciudades, y se espera que dicha cantidad aumente hasta el 60 % para 2030.

Las ciudades y las áreas metropolitanas son centros neurálgicos del crecimiento económico, ya que contribuyen al 60 % aproximadamente del PIB mundial. Sin embargo, también representan alrededor del 70 % de las emisiones de carbono mundiales y más del 60 % del uso de recursos.
