Key Themes for Cities in 2022

Topic: How different will 2022 be for the world’s major cities, compared with 2021? Will it be a continuation of partial and often erratic recovery, or will there be more of a take-off? Will working from home fade away, and will tourists be back in force? Might macroeconomic worries, plus adaption to climate change, cloud the picture? And are the answers the same for all major cities, or will trajectories sharply diverge?
