In 2008, for the first time in history, more than half of the world's population (3.3 billion people) will be living in urban areas and by 2030 this figure is expected to reach almost five billion. The next few decades will see an unprecedented scale of urban growth in the developing world, particularly in Africa and Asia."State of the World Population 2007: Unleashing the Potential of Urban Growth" examines the implications of increasing urbanisation with specific attention to poverty reduction and sustainability issues. It seeks to look beyond current problems in order to consider what needs to be done to address the significant challenges posed by urbanisation, by discussing the potential benefits of urban growth and learning how to exploit its possibilities.Divided into six parts, it includes: The Promise of Urban Growth; People in Cities: Hope Countering; Desolation; Rethinking Policy on Urban Poverty; The Social and Sustainable Use of Space; Urbanisation and Sustainability in the 21st Century; and a Vision for a Sustainable Urban Future: Policy, Information and Governance." Growing up Urban: State of World Population 2007 - Youth Supplement" (ISBN 0897148436) is available to buy separately, see below.
