Cities concentrate both human and capital resources, thereby promoting social and economic progress. Generally speaking, urban populations tend to be better off than their rural counterparts, with greater access to public services such as transport, education and healthcare, as well as higher literacy rates and life expectancy.


Driven by these benefits, the global population has tended towards ever increasing levels of urbanization. As recently as 1990, less than 40 percent of the global population lived in cities, according to World Health Organization (WHO) estimates. Presently, more than half the world’s population lives in urban areas, and by 2050, this number will grow to 70 percent. Most of the growth in urbanization will come from developing countries, which are expected to double their urban population from 2.5 billion in 2009 to almost 5.2 billion in 2050.
 

Safety Solutions

Regardless of a city’s aspirations to be smarter, more sustainable,eco-friendly, resilient or livable, it needs to be safe first. Without safety as the foundation, any city will face challenges in scaling greater heights.
 

Without a sense of personal and property security, institutions and businesses cannot function and society cannot flourish. Ensuring that citizens feel safe is a multidimensional task, requiring governments to take a long term and broad perspective. The main challenges that all governments face are providing effective border control and law enforcement for both physical and virtual crime, as well as preparing for disasters, whether they be natural or man-made.
