FT Special Report: Urban Resilience

Urban problems and successes

Urbanisation is growing at unprecedented rates, which means huge problems and challenges for post-industrial nations and developing countries alike. How can cities cope with increasing pressures on finance, infrastructure, housing and transport, while also dealing with concerns such as sustainability, pollution, natural disasters and the threat of terrorism?

This FT Special Report brings together five articles - Budgets, Emerging Economies, Extremism, Transport and Success Stories - that examine the areas that will shape risk management for some time to come.
