Cities that Work for All Residents
Today, more and more attention is being paid to the challenges of rising inequality and unsustainable growth patterns in development. However, little has been done to explore and promote the potential of cities to foster sustainable, equitable economic growth.
Why public goods and services?
Municipal goods and services are essential to reduce inequalities and ensure inclusive economic growth. Equitable access – through effective provision, inclusive distribution and fair pricing – directly improves the social and economic well-being of citizens and facilitates decent and productive employment. It also enables a vibrant and productive private sector – supporting investments, job creation and the commercial strength of formal and informal businesses.
