The City is economically vibrant and inclusive 3/10

The City We Need encourages and fosters local economic development from the smallest entrepreneur to the largest corporations. It streamlines licensing and other administrative services. It provides a level playing field, especially for micro-, small-, and medium-sized enterprises and supports local economic development through its own contracting and procurement functions.

The New Urban Agenda should recognize that the informal sector of the economy provides an important source of livelihood for the urban poor and especially for women and actively eliminates the barriers and obstacles that prevent them from realizing their full potential.

The City We Need recognizes that health is a precondition for productivity. It facilitates inclusive prosperity and promotes the right to decent work, livelihood and shared prosperity through skills development, youth training and policies that support non-discriminatory employment.  It does so in partnership with the private, public and civil society sectors.

The City We Need recognizes the role and potential of the shared economy both as a means to make public services more affordable and accessible and to promote local economic development.
