The Habitat Commitment Index 2.0: An Assessment of Global Urban Performance

The Habitat Commitment Index 2.0: An Assessment of Global Urban Performance

Summary

In 2015, the Global Urban Futures Project (GUF), a research initiative at the New School, developed the Habitat Commitment Index (HCI) to quantitatively measure country performance in fulfilling commitments made in the Habitat Agenda adopted at the Habitat II conference in 1996. The HCI is a composite score of 15 indicators at the country level that are essential to urban well-being.
