“Perception Matters: People Make Prosperous Cities” will introduce the FIABCI 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, well-being, integrated development and prosperity of their city.
The program will include a panel on how the Index was developed and modified to add a qualitative measure to the UN Habitat’s quantitative measure and results from pilot applications in Taichung City, Taiwan and Cyberjaya, Malaysia. The program will also present The City We Need is Affordable Vol II, a book outlining successful large-scale affordable housing development projects from every region in the world and a panel on future developments affecting the real estate industry including the potential use of block-chain technology.
