The 11 Cities With The Most Opportunity Right Now | Innovating on Partnerships for Development | Scoop.it

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) has a comprehensive new ranking of 30 cities in the world that offer the widest opportunities for businesses and the people who live there. PwC's sixth edition of its "Cities of Opportunity" report examined intellectual capital and innovation; technology readiness; how accessible a city is to the rest of the world; transportation and infrastructure; health, safety, and security; sustainability and the natural environment; demographics and livability; economic clout; ease of doing business; and cost. We took a closer look at the top 11 cities on the list, what got them there, and where they have room to improve.

5 Signs That The Collaborative Economy Is Going Through Puberty

5 Signs That The Collaborative Economy Is Going Through Puberty | Innovating on Partnerships for Development | Scoop.it
The collaborative economy is no longer a shiny new model of commerce, but rather in that awkward, in-between, adolescent stage .

Ferananda's curator insight, May 22, 2014 9:31 PM

I really appreciate the 5 signs that Lisa points to. Which are:

 

1. The voice has changed

People are choosing to share rather than own. Emerging forces from the bottom up. Cost reduction. Integrated value chains turning products into platforms. 

 

2. Peers are paramount

Collaborative economy hinges on the reputation and trust built between a set of peers. User-generated reputation which quantifie trust based on interactions within the community.

 

3. The elders get Fidgety

No more under the radar.  If the most recent surveys of cities prevail, the cities that first embrace change and create transit and income generation options will win favor with a growing breed of urban dwellers. Mexico is among them. 


4. Ecosystems are growing dense and diverse

As specific models and platforms gain market momentum, an entire ecosystem of commerce emerges. Secondary offerings validating the success of early brands.


5. Maturing brings power and responsibility

As the collaborative economy gains steam, it’s also gaining power, which can be measured in several ways: cultural capital, financial capital, and marketplace momentum


While the collaborative economy ventures have not yet hit their prime, they are clearly on their way. Whole new brands, teams, marketplace dynamics, investment in platforms, behaviors, and policies are evidence of the power in these models. With a bit more time, we’ll see the collaborative economy mature past that awkward, in-between stage into a full-fledged, trusted, and increasingly meaningful, global economic force.

What the Habitat III Agenda fails to consider

What the Habitat III Agenda fails to consider | Innovating on Partnerships for Development | Scoop.it
In June 2016, the United Nations will convene Habitat III, which will set the agenda for international cooperation on urban issues for the next 20 years. In the first of two articles addressing this agenda, we argue that the agenda currently on the table comprises several serious omissions, including any acknowledgement that conflict routinely arises in urban areas and must be addressed in an equally routine manner.

Climate threat to Africa’s resilience - UNISDR

Climate threat to Africa’s resilience - UNISDR | Innovating on Partnerships for Development | Scoop.it
A disaster-resilient future for Africa will have to take account of the fact that it is the region of the world that will suffer the most from climate change and which struggles the most when it comes to capacity to manage present and future disaster risk, the 5th Africa Regional Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction heard yesterday.
