It is estimated that in the year 1800, 3% of the world’s population lived in cities. By 1900, that number had reached 14% and by 2000, it had risen to 47%.1 Urbanisation has continued apace, with the tipping point reached in 2007, a year in which demographers estimated that the majority of the planet’s population was living in cities.
