Every day, close to 180,000 new urban dwellers need access to energy, water, sanitation, transport, waste management services, healthcare, education, and need to earn a living in cities in the developing world. To meet this growing demand, at least $70 trillion of global infrastructure investment is needed from 2016 until 2030. An additional $14 trillion of infrastructure investments is required by 2030 to meet minimum climate change targets of the COP 21 declarations.
