The rapid pace of urbanisation affects millions of people around the globe, posing challenges for health, safety and the environment. It also creates a growing global demand for solutions for the urban environment.
By 2050, 66% of the world’s population is expected to live in urban conurbations. The UN Agenda 2030 recognises the crucial role of cities in driving sustainable development, as highlighted in Sustainable Development Goal 11 on the importance of making cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
In the Nordic region we can offer high quality urban solutions based on our Nordic strengths such as good governance, public-private partnerships, design tradition, environmental and social consciousness as well as robust technological solutions.
