Along with UN-Habitat, the World Economic Forum, the OECD, the Canadian Government, and ICLEI, the World Bank recognizes the need for a comprehensive system that measures city service delivery and urban quality of life. To this effect, the Global City Indicators Program was developed in collaboration with partners to enable cities to measure, report, and improve their performance and quality of life, as well as facilitate capacity building, and share best practices through an easy-to-use web portal.
