“Years of specialist building collapse and building instability training were put to use assisting with immediate live rescue and victim recovery followed by emergency shoring and building stabilisation works.” Carl Devereux, Christchurch, New Zealand February 2011
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. This trend is unlikely to cease, and the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs’ Population Division estimates that by 2030, 5 billion people, or 60% of the world’s population, will be ‘urbanised’.
