"Cities are hubs for ideas, commerce, culture, science, productivity, social development and much more. At their best, cities have enabled people to advance socially and economically.... Many challenges exist to maintaining cities in a way that continues to create jobs and prosperity without straining land and resources." (United Nations, 2018)

"The world´s population is becoming increasingly urban. We’ll need to build a new city for one million people every week to keep up, or manage the growth of the cities we already have. The battle for sustainable development will be won or lost in our cities, working with the rural areas on which they depend for food and natural resources." (United Cities and Local Governments, 2016)
