Which country has the highest livability? The Global Liveability Index 2022
RadarTimikaOnline – Which country has the highest livability? The Global Liveability Index 2022. Considering a big move this year?
You might want to consider Canada or Western Europe. The annual ranking of the most livable cities in the world by The Economist Intelligence Unit (economist) has just been released, and the Global Livability Index for 2022 shows some noticeable differences from the previous year.
The Equal Opportunity unit, a sister organization of the Economist magazine, has ranked 173 cities around the world on a variety of factors, including healthcare, crime rates, political stability, infrastructure and access to green spaces.
Overall, Europe dominated the list, with six places in the top 11 (there was a tie for 10th place). Copenhagen, declared by CNN Travel as the wonderful capital of Europe in December 2021, took second place in the Global Livability Index.
Switzerland was the only country in Europe to have two entries in the top 10, with Geneva in sixth place and Zurich landing in third.
However, the overall winner of the country was Canada. The Great White North was represented by three of its cities-Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto.
“The cities that were at the top of our rankings before the pandemic have rebounded against the background of their stability, infrastructure, good services, as well as pleasant leisure activities,”the authors of the index write.
Last year’s winner, New Zealand’s Auckland, fell out of the top 10 in 2022 to land a surprising 34th place.
Neighboring Australia has seen the most pronounced drop in the world rankings this year. Despite topping the list in the past, Melbourne has slipped to 10th place in 2022.
In 2021, Australia dominated the IO index, with Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth joining Melbourne in the top 10. This year, they ranked 27th, 30th and 32nd, respectively.
Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, took fourth place in 2021 but also dropped out of the top 10 this year.
Although Europe has made a very good offer in 2022, two notable entries are missing-London and Paris. The increase in the cost of living expenses played a role in both cities, as did the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.
The constant global conflict was the first factor determining which countries ranked first at the bottom of the list. Damascus, Lagos and Tripoli were ranked as the three Least livable cities in the world.
At the same time, Kiev was not analyzed this year because of the ongoing war in Ukraine.
