The City Prosperity Initiative (CPI) is the United Nations’ global monitoring framework, developed to formulate evidence-based decisions, policy recommendations and urban data for cities. This Initiative was developed by UN-Habitat in 2012 as a mean to assist in the design of effective policy interventions. Additionally, the tool allows for cities to identify, evaluate, monitor and report on their progress towards the implementation of the Sustainable Development Agenda 2030 and the New Urban Agenda. Up to date, the CPI has been implemented in over 530 cities worldwide.

“The CPI is a global Initiative at an international level, echoing the need of the new era of Wuhan (China). It is an open research platform that emphasizes integration and an innovative spatial analysis tool.“
