According to the World Health Organization by 2030, 6 out of every 10 people will live in a #city, and by 2050, this proportion will increase to 7 out of 10 people. USFMEP is working each day with global leaders to find innovative solutions to make the word’s cities more liveable.

“Nelson Mandela was a great inspiration for the world and for me personally because of my work in peace-building through dialogue during the past twelve years. He inspired by example: forgiveness and reconciliation, which is part of what I do with people of diverse backgrounds in an attempt to build on the commonality of human beings.”
President Salwa Kader on Nelson Mandela in a Book of Condolence at the Permanent Mission of South Africa to the United Nations.
By 1990, less than 40% of the global population lived in a city, but as of 2010, more than half of all people live in an #urban area. USFMEP recognizes the importance of sustainable development and growth strategies for a rapidly growing global urban population.
