By 2050, 70% of the people in the world will be living in cities. And by that same year in the Philippines, it is estimated that 84% of the population or 117 million Filipinos will be living in Mega Manila and smaller urban centers around the country. This means city planners have only the next 40 years to provide new urban capacity equivalent to that of the past 4,000 years.
