A recent United Nations study predicted that the world’s population is expected to hit 10 billion by 2050 with almost 70% concentrated in cities across the globe. In Asia and Africa, it is estimated that urbanisation will be even higher than that of the global predicted average, edging closer towards 90% over the next three decades.
Cities across the globe, including Kuala Lumpur, are already suffering from overcrowding. Governments have been investing heavily to ensure that their cities can cope with the growing demands on infrastructure while maintaining a high quality of life for city dwellers. Mobility, accessibility and efficiency are key considerations when it comes to assessing a city’s quality of life or liveability as some would like to call it.
