Abstract: This report is an extension of the Final Year Project “Part I: Ranking of 2009 Global Livable Cities Index” and attempts to apply the concepts and information from Part I. The objective of this study is to introduce and provide possible rankings using simulations based on dimensions of livability in accordance to the Global Livable City Index (GLCI) Framework. The simulation of the overall GLCI rankings will serve as a source of motivation for cities to channel more effort and resources into poor-performing areas. The results of the simulation revealed that most cities have marked improvements in their rankings upon strengthening their weakest areas. Manila, Jakarta and Jerusalem observed the highest change in rankings upon simulation. Subsequently, this report provided further analysis of GLCI ranking by focusing on cities located in Asia. Hence, the development of an Asian Livable Cities Index (ALCI), a study on livability of Asian cities within the GLCI was created. The motivation behind this is to allow for better comparison between Asian cities in understanding their progressions relative to their Asian competitors in a more practical manner. In the ALCI ranking, the three leading Asian cities are Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo respectively, while Hanoi, Jakarta and Manila took the last three spots in the overall ranking. Subsequent to the ALCI ranking, an analysis based on the results will be conducted. The analysis serves to provide deeper insights and suggestions to policies that can be undertaken by leaders to improve the livability of their cities in the years to come.
