New Delhi, Dec 8 (PTI) NITI Aayog CEO Parameswaran Iyer on Thursday said that urbanisation is going to be the key as 50 per cent of India's population will live in urban areas by 2047.

Addressing an event organised by industry body FICCI, Iyer said many states have done wonderful work in solid waste management.

"Urbanisation is going to be the key. By 2047, 50 per cent of the population will live in urban areas, if you don't have basic services in urban areas, then it is going to be a big challenge," he noted.
