Correction to this week's News Review

Today's issue of News Review includes a piece from Elena Collins, Editor of World Cities Network on a new report from Atkins on Future Proofing Cities. Following a misprint in this week's issue, the article reads as follows:

A major new report ‘Future Proofing Cities’ was recently published by Atkins, in a unique partnership with the Department for International Development (DFID) and University College London (UCL). The report assesses the risks to cities from climate hazards, resource scarcities, and damage to ecosystems and how they can act now to future proof themselves. Covering 129 cities totalling 350 million people in 20 countries, the report identifies practical measures that cities can take to manage these future risks.

Around 75% of the world’s population will live in cities within 40 years. Almost all of this population growth will happen in the developing world, with 4.6 billion people projected to live in already rapidly growing cities. How will these cities in the developing world cope socially, environmentally and economically? Elena Collins met with Nick Godfrey, one of the principal writers of the Future Proofing Report, to discuss the urgent issues arising from rapid urbanisation.
