Spotlight on Monaco’s Mediterranean expansion

Monaco’s 38,000 residents currently live on just over 2 square kilometres of land – a surface area smaller than New York’s Central Park. With an estimated 2,700 people expected to move to Monaco by 2026, the issue of space has become critical.

For more than 150 years, Monaco has adapted its urban planning to the narrowness of its two squared km territory, which is constrained between mountains and sea.

The Principality is constantly shaping its urban landscape through major structural projects in order to meet the requirements of its demographic growth, economic attractiveness and sustainable development. In the last century, from the 1950s onwards, 20% of the Principality’s surface area was reclaimed from the sea.
