Karachi

For the fourth consecutive year, Karachi has been named among the 10 least liveable cities in the world by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU).
The port city has been ranked 136th on the annual Global Liveability Index 2019 of the Economist Group – the fifth least liveable city in the world. The list, published on Wednesday, included Tripoli, Dhaka, Lagos and, at the very bottom, Damascus.
Meanwhile, the Austrian capital Vienna has retained its ranking as the world’s most liveable city. Vienna once again came ahead of Melbourne – which had held the top ranking for seven years until losing it to Vienna in 2018.
The top two were followed by Sydney, Osaka and Calgary.—INP
