The Asia Pacific (APAC) region is continuing to make the running in the league of the world’s safest cities according to a new report, with Tokyo taking the top spot for the third year in a row.
The table was released last week in the third edition of the Safe Cities Index (SCI) from The Economist Intelligence Unit as the centrepiece of a research project sponsored by NEC Corporation.
The index ranks 60 cities worldwide across five continents, measuring the multi-faceted nature of urban safety, with indicators organised across four pillars – digital, infrastructure, health and personal security.
Reflecting past results, APAC contributes six of the top 10 safest places. Singapore and Osaka come second and third, while Sydney and Melbourne also make the premier list.
Of the other cities in the top 10, two – Amsterdam and Copenhagen – are European. Overall, Europe hosts six of the top 20 cities in the SCI 2019, including Stockholm (12th), London (14th), Frankfurt (16th) and Zurich (tied 18th).
Amsterdam improved its ranking, rising from sixth place in 2017 to fourth, and European cities generally performed well for health security, the report said, with four – Amsterdam, Stockholm, Frankfurt and Zurich – in the top 10 for this.
