Equitable and people-centered development pathway

Equitable and people-centered development builds more just, livable and inclusive urban communities and addresses poverty.

Through this pathway, local and regional governments pursue processes and patterns that support inclusive development for all and that safeguard the natural support systems for human life. They ensure that the natural and built environment in and around cities improves livability and safety, promotes human health and mitigates disease. They pursue secure and safe access to food, water, energy and sanitation for all, and clean air and soil. They create and sustain human-centered, safe, socially and culturally cohesive communities, where diversity and distinct identities are woven into the social fabric.
