Goal 11: Sustanable cities and communities
Today, most of the world’s population live in urban areas, and more are moving to. It is expected, that come 2050 the number of inhabitants will have reached 6,5 billion people, and that presents more challenges. In 1990, there were ten so-called megacities, each with a population of 10 million inhabitants. In 2014, there were 28. This requires increased investment in city planning and city management. Moreover, extreme poverty is often concentrated in the slums, and new initiatives are needed in order to include everyone and develop safe, sustainable cities for the world’s population. The eleventh UN global goal is to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable for all.
