Why has Karachi been named the ‘worst city to live in’; pollution or street crime?￼
What happened: An annual report released by the Economist Intelligence Unit ranked Karachi as the world’s worst city to live in. It is pertinent to mention that the annual report ranks the living conditions in 172 based on nearly 30 factors, which are then categorized into five stability, health care, culture and environment, education and infrastructures.
Details: However, currently, Karachi has been ranked 168 and is only better than Algiers, Tripoli, Lagos and Damascus. On the other hand, the Austrian capital Vienna has been made the world’s most liveable city, and the Ukrainian capital Kyiv was not even included in the list.
More: Express Tribune quoted the annual report by EIU as, “Stability and good infrastructure are the city’s main charms for its inhabitants, supported by good healthcare and plenty of opportunities for culture and entertainment.”
