2 Indian Cities Amongst Top 50 Safest Cities In The World 2021

| Published on August 27, 2021

Economist Intelligence Unit has recently released a study of the world’s safest cities. As per the study, Denmark’s capital Copenhagen has been named as the safest city in the world for 2021.

The Safe Cities Index 2021 is a report from The Economist Intelligence Unit, sponsored by NEC Corporation. The report is based on the fourth iteration of the index, which ranks 60 cities across 76 indicators covering digital, health, infrastructure, personal and environmental security. The scoring is done out of 100 points.

While Copenhagen scored 82.4, New Delhi (48) and Mumbai (50) also made it to the list with scores of 56.1 and 54.4 respectively.

As per the study, these are the top 10 safest cities in the world as per the overall score.

The study is based on 5 pillars namely Digital Security, Health Security, Infrastructure Security, Personal Security, and Environmental Security.

While Copenhagen wins the title of the safest city as per the overall average, here are the winners in the individual categories.

Reasons Why Copenhagen Is The Safest Place In The World

One key factor that makes Copenhagen such a safe city is its low crime rate, currently at its lowest level in more than a decade.

The report also states that Copenhagen is characterized by great social cohesion and a relatively narrow wealth gap. It is a mixed city where both the cleaning assistant and the CEO meet each other at the local supermarket and have their kids in the same school. This is one of the very cornerstones of Danish culture, and it contributes greatly to the high levels of trust and safety that we benefit from.

In terms of environment and security, the study tells us that Copenhagen aims to become the world’s first carbon-neutral capital city by 2025 with a dual approach. The country is taking up the responsibility of both, to mitigate the effects of climate change, and to reduce carbon emissions while also adapting our city to future climate changes.
