Topic: Urban Sustainability And Opportunity Resilient Karachi

Purpose / Objective: Despite these challenges, there is also a great opportunity to turn Karachi into a model of sustainable urban development
Overall Summary (3 Lines only): With a population of 16 million, Karachi is the largest megacity in Pakistan. Despite being a large city that is home to many, it has seen a substantial decline in quality of life and economic competitiveness in recent decades. Basic service delivery is very poor, with very low indicators for water supply, sanitation, public transport and public spaces. Pollution levels are high, and the city is vulnerable to disasters and climate change.
