The Economist has just shared its fourth edition of the World's Safest Cities Index. As always, the report covers 60 major cities worldwide and takes 76 indicators including digital, health, infrastructure, personal, and environmental security into consideration.

Copenhagen came out on top, beating out Tokyo which has dominated the Economist Intelligence Unit's previous surveys. Toronto came close in second place and was followed by Singapore. In all, the report says cities have strong environmental policies but must deliver results.

See the list below.

  1. Copenhagen
  2. Toronto
  3. Singapore
  4. Sydney
  5. Tokyo
  6. Amsterdam
  7. Wellington
  8. Hong Kong
  9. Melbourne
  10. Stockholm

While Manila didn't make it to the top 10 (or above the average score), it ranked just before the lower parts of the report at 51. The Philippines' capital city scored well when it comes to environmental security, but the overall score was brought down by personal security.

"Cities progressively over the years have come to understand that the more environmental security they have, the more health security and other kinds of security they have," said Gino Van Begin, secretary-general of local governments for sustainability.
