Global

Foreword 

We believe that urban infrastructure is one of the most pressing challenges facing the world today. More than half the global population lives in cities, and this figure is set to rise to more than 70 percent before 2050 as a further 3 billion people move to urban areas in search of work and prosperity.

At KPMG, we are privileged to have a global perspective on the work that urban administrations and national governments are doing to develop sustainable and achievable solutions to these challenges. We recognize the value of sharing insights and lessons to help cities develop a clear approach to urban infrastructure development.


This magazine embodies that spirit. We will hear from civic leaders around the world who share some of their insights and successes in urban infrastructure. Industry experts from across the KPMG network have also participated in this edition, providing practical advice and context on some of the biggest challenges facing cities in the near future.


We hope this magazine provides new ideas to the market and brings governments and urban planners a step closer to solving some of these pressing challenges. On behalf of the authors of this magazine, we encourage you to carry these ideas forward and welcome you to contact your local KPMG member firm to discuss any of the issues raised in greater depth.
