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. Through the programme we released two major reports: Seizing the Urban Opportunity in 2021 and Climate Emergency, Urban Opportunity in 2019.
