As the report outlines, multi-city regions – also known as mega regions – establish an integrated network of globally and locally connected cities, addressing the pressures of rapid urbanisation by redistributing growth across a larger area, and fuelling development in smaller or lower-demand areas.
What it covers
The Greater Cities: The Global Experience of Planning, Preparing and Promoting the Multi-City Region outlines the social, environmental and economic drivers and benefits of multi-city regions.
This includes their ability to:
increase long run productivity
improve growth management
grow global influence, reach and brand
supercharge innovation ecosystems.
Highlighting the global challenges and opportunities of multi-city regions, the report demonstrates how “the Six Cities Region can establish itself as the most forward-thinking and intentionally integrated multi-city region in the world”.
