Urbanization and Infrastructure

The world is rapidly urbanizing, with 70 percent of the global population expected to live in cities by 2050. Cities in low-income and lower-middle-income countries have had the highest urban population growth in recent decades. Poverty is also an increasingly urban problem; although rising city populations offer tremendous opportunities for economic growth and prosperity, the speed and scale of their growth pose significant challenges. By supporting research on infrastructure development, job creation, and health service access, the King Center seeks to promote sustainable, inclusive urbanization.
