A city is generally an extensive human settlement with a sophisticated system of transport, communication, housing, sanitation, etc. Historically, city-dwellers have been a small proportion of humanity overall, but following two centuries of unprecedented and rapid urbanisation, roughly half of the world population now lives in cities and 68% is projected to live in urban areas by 2050.[1]
