The Right to City: Key Challenges Exist In Creating More Socially-Inclusive Cities For The

Twenty-First Century

Herrle and Walther (2005) have noted that an inclusive city should have all the rights of
all people residing there respected and should not be subjected to any form of discrimination.
While supporters of the socially inclusive city argue that all people residing in a city are equal
regardless of their cultures, race, ethnic groups, and socio-economic statuses; urbanization has
indicated that city dwellers are not treated equally. Despite that there is evidence of increased
urbanization in terms of increased population of people living in urban areas; there are cases of
discrimination meted against some people especially in the emerging cities. Currently, cities are
experiencing sustainability challenges such as urbanization and climate change. On the other
hand, cities are regarded as the agents of change when it comes to providing solutions to these
challenges. Governments have put a lot of effort in implementing several transformative projects
such as smart city initiatives which are aimed at improving the quality of for all people living in
cities.
