Repousser les limites de notre ville
Cities are home to more than half of the world’s population and are the engines of economic growth and employment. However, cities also face major environmental, economic and social challenges, many of which are associated with the fact that urban development has occurred.
Urban sprawl, a particular form of development, is often cited as a driver of several of these challenges, including biodiversity loss, greenhouse gas emissions, air pollution, road congestion and lack of affordable housing.
• What exactly is urban sprawl and how can it be measured?
• Are cities in OECD countries sprawling and how is this impacting the environment?
