CITIES at the VANGUARD: MIGRATION and the METROPOLIS
Convened by: The Global Cities Coalition

“By working together to build urban resilience, we can reduce our reliance on crisis as a driver of change and proactively plan for a future that is bright for all migrants and residents living in our cities.

“Mass migration has grown into one of the major urban challenges of the 21st century. As cities contend with the effects of climate change and aging infrastructure, they must also learn to adapt to waves of newcomers. Today, more than 60 million people have had to leave their homes because of conflict, in the largest wave of human displacement since World War II. Yet even this number is dwarfed by the world’s total population of international migrants, which peaked at 244 million in 2015. Regardless of their reasons for arrival, the overwhelming majority of migrants now remain in cities, and are helping shape their future.” – Rockefeller Foundation Resilient Cities Project

This year’s Inquiry will focus on the challenges that cities face as they sit on the frontlines of the migration wave.
