Three-quarters of Russians in 2050, or 110.6 million people, will live in urban areas.

The U.N. report adds that the expected increase to 68 percent by 2050 will place extra demands on resources and services.

Tokyo with 37 million people is the world's largest city but it is due to be overtaken by Delhi around 2028, the report said.

Tokyo is now the largest city on the planet with 37 million inhabitants, followed by New Delhi with 29 million, Shanghai with 26 million and Sao Paulo and Mexico City with 22 million apiece.

Cairo, Mumbai, Beijing, and Dhaka all have close to 20 million inhabitants.

Megacities are those with more than 10 million inhabitants and the reports says a lot of them would be in developing countries.

The chairman of NPC, Eze Duruiheoma, stated this in NY while delivering Nigeria's statement on sustainable cities, human mobility and global migration at the 51st session of commission on population and development.

About 90% of the world's rural population live in Africa and Asia.

As the world continues to urbanize, sustainable development depends increasingly on the successful management of urban growth, especially in low-income and lower-middle-income countries where the pace of urbanization is projected to be the fastest. "Integrated policies to improve the lives of both urban and rural dwellers are needed, while strengthening the linkages between urban and rural areas, building on their existing economic, social and environmental ties", it said.

"When urban growth is rapid, ensuring access to housing, water, sanitation, electricity, public transport, education and health care for all is especially challenging", John Wilmoth, director of the Population Division, said at a United Nations news conference, according to Reuters.

UN DESA's Population Division is has been issuing reports on urbanization since 1988.
