Infographic for China’s Urbanisation

untitledHere is an infographic for China’s Urbanisation produced by the EU-funded Dragon-STAR project. China’s urbanisation over the past three decades is a massive phenomenon of scale and speed. In the 1980’s, there were less than 200 million of “urban” population. However, by 2011, 700 million (half of the total population) live in urban areas, while the figure is expected to further grow in future as 250 million migrant workers are expected to move to the cities by 2030.
