Issue: Liveability of human settlements - Human health and well being
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. Human health and well-being is the most basic indicator of whether humans are finding their settlement a tolerable place to live.
