The world is urbanizing: more than half of the global population lives in cities, and almost all the projected population growth in the coming decades will be in urban areas in the developing world. This is potentially worrisome, given that today's cities consume three-quarters of the world's natural resources and generate three-quarters of the world's waste. On the other hand, cities have the potential to be extremely efficient. In this talk, MIT Professor Judith Layzer considers how cities can contribute to global efforts to become more sustainable.
