Based on model projections done jointly by OECD and the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency, it focuses on four areas which were identified as needing urgent attention by an earlier OECD Outlook published in 2008. Chapter 2 discusses socio economic developments, for example highlighting that nearly 70% of the world population will be urban by 2050, magnifying challenges such as air pollution, transport congestion, and waste management.
