Abstract

In this chapter, the conceptualization of healthy city including its characteristics and societal benefits are discussed. To build and sustain healthy cities, a well-established approach found in literature is reviewed. Furthermore, more recent literature has been calling for more effective city-level systems to deal with constant and fast-changing city health conditions as city-immigration is hitting global record high and thus the challenge is ever more difficult. A particularly debated area is the impact of foreign direct investment (FDI) on health of cities of host countries. Recent emerging trend identifiable in recent literature is the seeking and promotion of building technologically-smart and resource-sustainable cities. The chapter concludes by highlighting some important future considerations for public policy bodies.
