What Growing Cities Can Mean For Children

More than half the world’s 7 billion people now live in cities or towns. More than 1 billion of them are children! What’s this going to look like by 2050? For one thing, 2 out of 3 people will live in urban areas. See which countries will have the most urban growth: http://www.unicef.org/sowc2012/urbanmap/

Worldwide 1 in 3 urban dwellers lives in a slum. UNICEF’s The State of the World’s Children 2012: Children in an Urban World delves into the disadvantages children face every day – whether they’re children living in slums or informal settlements, migrant children or just children living or working on the street – and explores how to improve their futures.
