Today, more people live in cities than in rural areas. By 2050, 7 out of 10 people will be urbanites with the majority of growth occurring in the cities of the South. It is recognised that urbanisation is not an outcome of development, but rather a key source of development. Participants focused on inclusive growth in its urban dimension.
