  • Speaking at a recent World Bank event, Lewis Dijkstra of the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy at the European Commission (whose presentation contains updated EC estimates ) said that a "harmonised" and "people-based definition" of cities enables effective monitoring of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

  • They facilitate the discussions between cities and urban communities, and so, in their work, they started collecting a lot of data regarding what could be important for where these programs can be established or be successful, but they didn't know what to do with all of that data and it was getting kind of overwhelming.

  • On the other hand, if we avoid Clark's model, we will not be able to describe many cities' population density empirically. (hindawi.com)
  • Population is one of the two central variables which can be employed to explore the dynamics of cities [ 9 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • The first is to reveal the locality and localization of urban population evolution, which is very important for simulating spatial complexity of cities through computers. (hindawi.com)
  • Cities are constantly evolving, and urban populations respond to a number of push-pull factors, including economic opportunity, lifestyle trends, land values, and natural disasters. (visualcapitalist.com)

  • A number of cities in America's "Rust Belt" experienced declining populations. (visualcapitalist.com)
  • The shrinking tax base and glut of vacant homes is causing a number of problems in the two cities, and with mixed economic prospects, it's unclear what the next 25 years will bring in terms of population changes. (visualcapitalist.com)
  • density
  • We analyze a neoclassical general-equilibrium model to explain cross-metro variation in population, density, and land supply based on three amenity types: quality-of-life, productivity in tradables, and productivity in non-tradables. (repec.org)
  • From wage and housing-cost indices, the model explains half of U.S. density and total population variation, and finds that quality of life determines locations more than employment opportunities. (repec.org)
  • Clark's law on urban density can provide a window for us to apprehend the dynamics of urban morphology from the angle of view of population. (hindawi.com)
  • demographic
  • The scientists from UNIGE, the University of Twente and the EU Joint Research Centre based their research on scientific climate projections and future urban demographics (rather than on current demographic data) to calculate the risk in the years ahead - which was in itself a first.

  • “The outcome of this workshop will be a clear roadmap for the preparation of the national urban policy as well as identification of key issues that the policy should address,†Mr Chenda said. (co.zm)
