Did you know that the average traveling speed by car is just 8 km/h in Jakarta? And that the municipal water demand is expected to rise by 40% globally by 2025? There is no shortage of problems related to e.g. transportation and energy supply in urban areas. But for every problem, there is a long-term solution. Around the world, we advise cities looking to strike the right balance between infrastructure issues, economic growth, the environment and society development when planning for the future. Liveable City Development, we call it.

Cities have become the engines of economic prosperity and development. Thus, a balanced approach to urban improvement potentially means a remarkable return on investment.
Our experience is naturally global and we have prepared both countries and cities for a sustainable upturn. From Oslo in the North to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in the South. From Chicago in the West to Singapore in the East. As long-term society consultant to Copenhagen, Ramboll has made a major contribution to Copenhagen’s position as the most liveable city in the world (Monocle).
Urban solutions have been part of our DNA for many decades. Adding to Ramboll’s substantial city offering, we have developed the Liveable Cities Lab to ensure close collaboration between our experts providing city-related services at both the strategic and implementation levels.
The Liveable City Lab equally initiates research and innovation as a platform for knowledge- sharing with leading universities, research institutes, cities, and private organisations.
A liveable city should be sustainable and appealing to its inhabitants. Nordic cities are role models for cities that strive to create ‘the good life’ for their citizens.
At Ramboll, we deliver the full range of transformational city services. In this e-book we bring you knowledge about stakeholder involvement and socio-economy in particular.
