LIVING & INCLUSION

Everyone may have a different idea of what a livable city is, but it generally hinges on a combination of factors that contribute to a good quality of life for all its residents. Providing for basic needs and ensuring the affordability of housing, reliable healthcare, and education as well as a sustainable infrastructure and secure environment is essential.

But things evolve and cities need to adjust. So, what strategies can they adopt to strike a balance between fostering a better life, protecting citizen’s rights, and adapting to the ever-changing urban landscape?
