By 2030, cities around the world are expected to grow by nearly 1.4 billion people and a bulk of this growth is expected to happen in the developing world. In our urbanized future, it will be crucial for international aid agencies to be prepared to administer their services in dense locales far removed from their traditionally rural outposts. USAID’s new policy will position the agency to capitalize on an urban future by assisting governments to deliver services in an inclusive, transparent, and sustainable manner.

This event is hosted by the Strategic Foresight Initiative’s Urban World 2030 project.

Please use the West Tower Elevators when you arrive.
