Management of Urban Infrastructures – part 1 - École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. Today, more than 3.9 billion people live in urban areas, i.e. more than 54% of the world’s total population.
It is projected that urbanization will continue in the coming years, raising the urban population to 6.0 billion people by 2045. The significant increase in urban population will increase the demand for energy, mobility, water, and other urban services in cities. So, cities have to become more efficient in provision of urban services. Besides, cities are the biggest polluters of the environment, responsible for more than 80% of Green House Gases emissions, 75% of waste generation and 70% of global energy consumption. Due to the global awareness about negative environmental impacts of such pollution, cities are feeling more pressure to improve their environmental performance, while improving their level of services.
