Cities of the future - global competition, local leadership

The urban population explosion which is forecast positions cities as the engines for developing the society of the future and means we are at a defining point in how our urban future unfolds. In the report PricewaterhouseCoopers asks city leaders about the challenges their cities face; international and national, external and internal, how they are responding to them and what their plans are for the future.

PricewaterhouseCoopers has identified six areas of significant challenge that have to be taken into account when creating a strategy for the future:
  • Intellectual and social capital
  • Democratic capital
  • Culture and leisure capital
  • Environmental capital
  • Technical capital
  • Financial capital
