Climate change is accelerating at an unprecedented rate due to rapid urbanisation.
New technology, geopolitical instability, and increasing socioeconomic inequality impact how cities are planned, built and lived in.
There is also an increasing need to look into issues arising from urbanisation, such as the design and use of the physical environment, climate change, population growth, environmental conservation, sustainable energy, food security and sustainability and water consumption.
