Panel: Climate-ready smart cities—Preparing for the future
24 March 2022 Economist Impact 7th annual Sustainability Week
Cities occupy 2% of the global land mass, consume over two-thirds of the world’s energy and account for more than 70% of global CO2 production. 55% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, a proportion that is expected to increase to 68% by 2050.
