We are delighted to share that the final report for our Bangkok Liveability Project – Measuring, monitoring and translating urban liveability in Bangkok – is now available for download.
Through this project, our team was able to develop knowledge of placed-based liveability in a rapidly urbanising low-to-middle income city. We were able to create a suite of 65 liveability indicators, all aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, that can be applied across a range of contexts. We also created and shared capacity building resources and tools to support ongoing use of these indicators for other communities.
The project demonstrated that open source data can be used to create liveability indicators for Bangkok when local spatial data is not available, and a Spatial Urban Indicators Framework was developed enabling indicators to be updated over time.
