In 1900, only 13 percent of people lived in urban areas. Today, cities account for more than half the global population and this figure is expected to increase to 70 percent by 2050. In the face of rapid urbanization, KPMG professionals work with city leaders to help create more livable, sustainable and productive cities.

Municipalities continue to face a wide range of fiscal and operational challenges. Aging demographics, rapid population growth, aging infrastructures, outdated finance models, and overburdened transit systems are driving leaders to seek more creative and effective ways to manage spending and improve services. Rather than simply cutting budgets across the board, the focus is now on “smart spending” on more innovative systems and processes that will help drive efficiencies, streamline service delivery and increase revenue streams.


KPMG professionals have the experience and knowledge to help you to assess your needs and determine where and when investments make the most sense. Our advisors can also work with you to help explore new opportunities, such as leveraging public/private partnerships, identifying outsourcing and revenue generation opportunities, repurposing IT infrastructures, or reducing interdepartmental duplication.
