Shifting to Planned Urbanization in Asia: The Role of The Role of Development and South-South Cooperation
Rapid urbanization is one of the most critical trends facing the world today. By 2025, Asia will be home to 60 percent of the world’s megacities, suggesting that the Asian century is also the urban century. While home to the world’s most populous cities, Asia also offers a trove of successful urban strategies and solutions.
Begun in late 2010, the Asian Approaches to Development Cooperation series — hosted jointly by the Korea Development Institute (KDI) and The Asia Foundation—has provided a forum for Asian officials, experts, policymakers, and practitioners of development and South-South cooperation to explore and debate ways of confronting the challenges and opportunities that the region faces. In 2017, the series focused on Asian lessons and partnerships addressing the region’s urbanization challenges, in the context of the NUA and SDGs.
