People-Centred Cities Requires Strong Leadership

Over four billion people around the world live in cities and the number is growing by 1.5 million each week. As urban growth rockets through the region, a holistic approach towards developing our cities is important to ensure inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable communities. We speak to a panel of experts to discuss this from a global perspective and what Malaysia can learn from.
