By 2050, about 70 per cent of the world's population is projected to live in urban areas. Rapid urban growth is mainly occurring in countries least able to cope with the demand for decent jobs, adequate housing and urban basic services. Close to one billion people, or 33 per cent of the urban population in developing countries, live in slums, in inequitable and often life-threatening conditions. If left unaddressed, these trends may become sources of social and political instability.

UN-Habitat and Post-2015
Rio+20 in 2012 gave fresh impetus to the development of a new global agenda for sustainable development commencing in 2015. At its heart are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that will replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) upon their expiration. While United Nations Member States are formally leading the development of this agenda, the UN system -- including UN-Habitat -- and many nongovernmental stakeholders are also playing a significant role. Activities are heavily grouped around a High-level Forum, Open Working Group and UN Task Team, all of which will inform the post-2015 sustainable development vision that the Secretary-General will present to the General Assembly in September 2013. Apropos that vision, the SG has also tasked UN-Habitat to lead a new Executive Committee on Sustainable Urbanization (EC-SU) and UN-Habitat's Executive Director, Dr. Joan Clos, to be the Secretary-General of the upcoming Habitat III summit conference.
