Cities represent opportunity. Because of this, seven in 10 people are predicted to become urban dwellers by 2050, according to estimates from the United Nations.
However, major hubs are attracting more residents than their current infrastructure can handle. This migration pattern forces governments to expend more of their resources quickly – without proper urban and resource planning – to cover the needs of a growing population.
Arowana Impact Capital works with businesses that develop sustainable solutions to the challenges of urban life, from housing and transportation, to energy systems and infrastructure. These development initiatives reimagine the cities of today as epicentres of economic growth in the future.
Our programmes for sustainable urbanisation integrate other Global Goals, particularly the call for greater climate action; the protection, conservation and efficient use of resources; and greater human development through increased access to basic social services.
