September 23, 2019 – September 24, 2019
By 2050, over 70 per cent of the world population will be living in cities covering less than 2 per cent of the earth’s surface. Never have cities been so challenged and the trend continues to grow. And, this rise to many issues like rising inequality, environmental pollution, infrastructure access, traffic congestion, mobility, safety and health of residents are only a few examples.
