Citizen Centric Cities
The Sustainable Cities Index 2018
"Why is one city more sustainable than another? Is it because of physical attributes such as a safe, resilient location or as a result of far-sighted investment in green space? Is it the result of long periods of investment in health, education and transport infrastructure, or the impact of more recent actions taken to mitigate the impacts of unfettered growth? Most importantly, how do these drivers relate to citizen needs, both now and in the future?
The Index highlights that emerging needs, such as digital connectivity, are being addressed in cities at all levels of sustainability. The research features new work on city archetypes and clusters aimed at explaining the implications of a citizen’s experience."
