This is all down to a combination of things.
Population numbers - There are just too many people in a given area for the system to cope
Economic factors - People not being able to afford cars or able to gain work closer to home
Social attitudes - People not choosing to learn to drive, or not wanting to use other forms of transport
Infrastructure spending - Governments and corporations either not willing to spend on services or unable to do so
Privatization versus nationalization - Private companies using corrupt means to funnel profits out rather than invest, and governments refusing to
invest where a private company might be driven to for increased profits.
In each country where you see this there are likely various factors involved too. India is entirely different to China, and China entirely different
to London (which also gets incredibly crowded during rush hours).
People in China fled from the countryside to the cities to be able to work and they've seen massive growth in a relatively short time, meaning they
haven't had the time or the foresight to invest in increased infrastructure.
People in India cannot find work in rural areas and all need to get one the one train on their failing system not updated since colonialism just to be
able to get to a city.
People in London prefer to use the Tube rather than walk for half an hour, and the system has not kept pace with population demands.
None of this has anything to do with any global agenda, and it certainly has nothing to do with the UN.
