In 2023, Abu Dhabi and Dubai top the list of the most liveable cities in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region for the fifth consecutive year.

Other cities in the top 10 include Tel Aviv, Kuwait City, Doha, Bahrain, Muscat, Riyadh, Amman and Jeddah, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit.

The study ranked the condition of 173 cities in five categories: stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure.

In January, Resonance Consultancy named Dubai the No. 1 best city in the region and No. 5 best city in the world, based on categories such as prosperity, safety, landmarks and outdoor activities. The authority’s aim is to make UAE cities not only the best places to work, but also the best destinations to live in.

The list of the best places to live in the world is dominated by cities in Canada, Europe and Australia, with Vienna topping the list, followed by Copenhagen, Melbourne, Sydney, Vancouver, Zurich, Calgary, Geneva, Toronto, Osaka and Auckland. The least liveable cities are Damascus, Tripoli, Algiers, Lagos, Karachi, Port Moresby, Dhaka, Harare, Kiev and Douala.

“Living conditions in cities around the world have fully recovered from the deterioration caused by the Covid-19 pandemic… Cities in the Asia-Pacific region have rebounded the most. The index also shows that urban living is better than at any time in the past 15 years Some.”

Of the five categories covered by the survey, only the stability score fell on average in 2023, largely due to worker strikes in Greece, pension protests in France and deadly clashes in Israel and Peru.

However, inflation could lead to further declines in stability scores in many parts of the world next year, hurting overall liveability scores, the study warns.
