As people move from villages to cities on an unprecedented scale, the world must seek better ways to solve urban problems such as over-crowding, pollution and inadequate public services. Indeed, there is no industry that will remain immune to urbanisation.
To deliberate these challenges from policy to urban planning, and finance to infrastructure, Singapore investment company Temasek hosted the second Ecosperity conference on September 18 for some 300 leaders from business, government and academia.
Held in partnership with Goldman Sachs, the NUS School of Design and Environment, NUS Institute of Real Estate Studies, and Centre for Liveable Cities, the conference was themed “Urbanisation: Developing cities for a sustainable future”. Read the full conference report, produced by Eco-Business.
