City Prosperity Index

Abstract: 
The recent City Prosperity Index was proposed by UN-Habitat as a platform to monitor SDGs urban-related indicators (Goal 11) and suggested to serve as a comparative platform for cities to monitor dimensions important for sustainability and track progress towards improvements in performance. "The CPI-Perception tool offers a complementary and / or alternative method to understand and monitor the sustainability conditions of cities and their communities. It introduces real time analysis of opinion and current understanding of inhabitants and stakeholders of a city’s prosperity, possibilities to implement adequate plans, actions and policies for improvement. Governments will receive a systematic feedback based on how people understand and feel about the different dimensions of prosperity of the city, facilitating a greater collaboration between the government, private sector and civil society" (retrieved from http://cpi.unhabitat.org/).
