The Urban Opportunity

Our flagship research series supporting the efforts of national governments to transform cities in ways that accelerate economic development and encourage climate action.

Thriving cities make prosperous countries.

Our Urban Opportunity programme demonstrates how national governments can create shared prosperity by making cities low-carbon, resilient and inclusive.

On 17 March 2021 we launched our new report from the series: Seizing the Urban Opportunity. This new report demonstrates how national governments can prioritise action on cities to create much needed economic security and employment today to enable rapid strides towards a zero-carbon, resilient, and inclusive future tomorrow.
