The policy study on strategic options for urbanization in the PRC will focus on in-depth and systematic analyses of three important urban development issues: (i) the projected pace and spatial distribution of urbanization in the PRC, (ii) the emerging urban structural pattern of the PRC's city system across the country, and (iii) the policy and institutional reforms and other interventions needed to facilitate coherent, sustainable urban development in the PRC. Special attention will be given to the policy and institutional reforms needed to address the challenges associated with the massive migration of people from rural to urban areas in terms of providing adequate (i) basic infrastructure such as housing, social and municipal services; (ii) public employment services; and (iii) social security coverage for the fast-growing urban population.
