Urban world: meeting the demographic challenge

Demographic change is one of the powerful forces transforming the world economy. As global population growth slows and urbanization plateaus in many regions, the outlook for cities and their growth changes profoundly. This paper explores the challenges facing the urban world and strategies that cities might deploy to survive and thrive in a more challenging backdrop. It builds on MGI’s report in spring 2016 Urban world: The global consumers to watch, the fourth in Urban world series, which analyzed how slowing population growth is likely to shape global consumption over the next 15 years.
