Sustainable and Liveable Cities: Toward Ecological Civilization
A groundbreaking review of China's historic urbanization and an analysis of the opportunities and hazards ahead for the world's most populous nation.
China's accelerating urbanisation is approaching a critical stage, and how this is managed will have wide ramifications for the outcomes of many of China's present development challenges, according to United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in China's 2013 National Human Development Report (NHDR), launched today in Beijing.
"The battle against climate change, the fight against inequalities, and the response to a rapidly ageing population - to mention a few - will depend on measures taken within the context of China's burgeoning cities," argues the report, entitled Sustainable and Liveable Cities: Toward Ecological Civilisation.
