      By , more than two-thirds of the world’s population will live in the city. By Eric J. Gertler Executive Chairman Oct. 2, , at a.m. Why Cities Matter.   Japan’s population is expected to decline by 25 percent over the next 35 years, taking it from million to 95 million. The numbers are similar for South Korea and Singapore, two other fully developed Asian societies. But fertility declines aren’t unique to the developed world. Urbanization and the empowerment of women are global phenomena.

      In , 30% of the world’s population was urban. A century later, 66% of people are expected to live in urban areas. In terms of absolute numbers, the difference is stark.   But in a world of graying and shrinking populations, that is the most likely scenario, as Japan’s aging, graying, and shrinking absolute population now demonstrates. A world of zero to negative population growth is likely to be a world of zero to negative economic growth, because fewer and older people consume less.

    Continuing population growth and urbanization are projected to add billion people to the world’s urban population by , with nearly 90% of the increase concentrated in Asia and Africa. The fastest growing urban agglomerations are medium-sized cities and cities with less than 1 million inhabitants located in Asia and Africa.   The third list of prefectural-level and above cities that have experienced shrinkage during – is reported by Wu and Li, which has accounted for different definitions of the ‘urban population’. The three lists cont 30, and 22 shrinking cities for our analysis, respectively.
