BANGLADESH’S URBAN FUTURE- making cities and towns work for all

01 Jan 2012


Bangladesh is one of the countries in South Asia that are experiencing very rapid urbanization. Its cities are growing more than twice the rate of rural areas, and this rapid growth of urbanization is expected to continue till Bangladesh transitions from a low income to a middle income country. Only 28 to 30 percent of the total population living in urban areas is contributing approximately 60 percent to the national GDP.
