Lagos ranks 2nd on World’s Least Liveable Cities

Despite the progress, Nigeria’s commercial capital, Lagos, has made since the advent of democracy in 1999, the city has been ranked second on the World’s Least Liveable Cities.

Lagos ranks 2nd, behind Damascus and ahead of Tripoli and Dhaka on the annual report by the Economist.On the other spectrum, Melbourne has topped a list of the World’s Most Liveable city for the seventh year running but terrorism and diplomatic tensions are eroding living conditions worldwide, an annual report from the Economist has found.

The Australian city was ranked number one out of 140 cities, slightly ahead of the Austrian capital Vienna, with the Canadian trio of Vancouver, Toronto and Calgary completing the top five.

“This is a win for all Victorians, who contribute so much to making Melbourne the best place to live in the world,” said Victorian state Premier Daniel Andrews.

The survey, released Wednesday, scores cities on five broad categories: stability; healthcare; culture and environment; education and infrastructure.
