Some relevant information

Today 54 percent of the world’s population lives in urban areas. By 2050 this is expected to be 66 percent. Asia is home to 53% of the world’s urban population, followed by Europe with 14% and Latin America and the Caribbean with 13%.

The revised World Urbanization Prospects by UN DESA notes that in 1990 there were 10 megacities each housing 10 million people or more (Tokyo being the largest with 38 million). By 2014 the number of megacities increased to a total of 28. These megacities house 453 million people or 12% of the world’s urban population. Of these megacities 16 are located in Asia, 4 in Latin America, 3 in Africa, 3 in Europe and 2 in North America. By 2030, it is estimated that there will be 41 megacities worldwide each containing ten million inhabitants or more.

The authors of the UN DESA study, point out that the current rate of population growth will make it challenging for cities to meet the future needs of its inhabitants when it comes to housing, infrastructure, transportation and the provision of basic services.
