The spread of urbanisation is heating the planet, destroying biodiversity, and making us even more vulnerable to climate change. But cities are also our common good. They are the sites of wealth creation, innovation, culture, solidarity, and resilience. This Atlas provides an unprecedented perspective on our urbanized world.
