State of China’s Cities Report 2010/11
The first State of China’s Cities Report 2010/11 looks at policies and practices that have engendered smart urbanisation of China in the past 60 years. It also provides the experiences, lessons and challenges faced by China in sustaining its urban development in the context of rapid industrialisation and urbanisation within a globalising world.
A joint effort between UN-HABITAT, China Science Center of International Eurasian Academy of Sciences and China Association of Mayors, the report covers five strategic steps to nurture and grow smarter cities. They are: improve quality of life; invest in human capital; foster sustained economic opportunities; enhance political inclusion; and promote cultural inclusion.
