Welcome to the Pakistan Urban Observatory

How many cities in Pakistan have population of more than 100,000? What are the key issues facing District Headquarters of Pakistan? How many people live in urban informal settlements and katchi abadis? What is the average number of seats per public transport for women?

Urban Observatory gives you answer to such questions and help you in answering them. Go to the discussion board and raise an issue and we will carry the discussion forwards with youth groups, experts and policy makers.

Urban Observatory is making a page for every one of the 500 urban centers in Pakistan. Presently, pages for 8 cities, one each in Pakistan’s Administrative Region and Azad Jammu and Kashmir is ready for use. In addition pages for 30 Cities registered under the “Resilient Cities Campaign” are also being prepared.
