Issue: Liveability of human settlements - Recreation
This is an issue under the Human settlements theme of the Data Reporting System.
Liveability can be defined as the degree to which a human settlement provides a safe, inclusive and environmentally benign basis for the social and economic life of all its citizens. As the places where the majority of humans live, the liveability of human settlements is important in determining both the quality of life of the residents and the economic competitiveness of the settlement. One important aspect of liveability is scope for recreation.
