Three Key Challenges for the Future of ChinaÕs Cities

by swisscham in General Interest

China faces unprecedented economic, social and environmental challenges Ð and sizeable opportunities Ð as it manages its transition to an increasingly urbanized economy. China can equip its fast-expanding cities for sustainable growth if city officials, industry and other stakeholders together focus on three key themes: transport planning and management, urban energy management, and sustainable industry development. Our new report, The Future of Urban Development Initiative, comes at a time when around half of ChinaÕs population (more than 750 million people) live in cities. The country has six megacities with more than 10 million people and 103 cities with more than one million people. The China State Council estimates that urban populations will continue to grow at the rate of 1% a year.
