FIABCI Global Projects
Sustainable Cities and Communities
FIABCI has published four volumes in its series titled The City We Need is Affordable. The extraordinary population growth expected in the next three decades creates an urgent need to build more housing of more types in more places for all income levels
We are pleased with the success of the previous volumes and are excited to continue to share the best practices we have collected. The most recent volume debuted at the UN-Habitat World Urban Forum 10 in Abu Dhabi where the theme was “Cities of Opportunities: Connecting Culture and Innovation”.
We look forward to the next volume and encourage you to contact your national FIABCI Chapter to share ideas and solutions from your city.
City Prosperity Initative (cpi)
Within the framework of the New Urban Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), UN-Habitat and FIABCI cooperate for the implementation of CPI. The objective of CPI is to assess sustainable urban development of cities.
City Prosperity Initiative – Perceptions Index (CPI-PI), an online tool to capture people’s perceptions on the progress of their city in becoming more inclusive, secure, resilient and sustainable. The CPI-PI uses six dimensions of prosperity and sustainability: productivity, infrastructure development, quality of life, equity and social inclusion, environmental sustainability and urban governance. It offers recent and reliable opinions from the public and experts on their vision, thoughts and feelings on the sustainability, wellbeing, integrated development and prosperity of their city. http://cpi.unhabitat.org/
