urban development

Over the next 30 years, the expected rate of population growth, particularly in the cities of developing countries, will place huge demands on municipalities and local governments, to meet ever increasing social demands, such as:

  • Transport infrastructure
  • Urban water supply and sanitation
  • Healthcare
  • Education
  • Housing

Roughton believes that the development of the institutional capacities of the municipalities and local governments is vital in promoting and improving urban development, in order that it can provide the population with basic services that all societies and communities need.
