The State of the World’s Cities 2012/2013: The Prosperity of Cities

Share

Development actors need to explore a more inclusive notion of prosperity and development, finds The State of the World’s Cities 2012/2013: The Prosperity of Cities, the latest of UN-Habitat’s flagship reports. According to the report, there is a need for a shift in attention around the world in favour of a more robust notion of development—one that looks beyond the narrow domain of economic growth that has dominated ill-balanced policy agendas over the last decades and includes other vital dimensions such as quality of life, adequate infrastructures, equity and environmental sustainability
