Pakistan's Urbanization-Urban Transport Planning: Moving People and the Economy
Pakistan is South Asia’s most rapidly urbanizing country. In barely 10 years, nearly 50 percent of its 180 million people will live in cities (a third do today). Murtaza Haider, an associate dean at Ryerson University in Toronto, examines how Pakistan can overcome its considerable urban transport challenges.
This publication marks the second of four policy briefs on Pakistan’s urbanization. The series seeks to share with a wider audience the proceedings of a recent Wilson Center conference that explored Pakistan’s urbanization challenges.
