Global Goal for Sustainable Development and City Prosperity Index
  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  

BENGALURU, June 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

On the World Stage as World President - FIABCI

For the first time in the history of FIABCI, International Real Estate Federation, a World President from an Asian country has been chosen and he is none other than Farook Mahmood.

He has both vision and mission to lead  and achieve greater heights in the real estate world. As a World President, his first and foremost priority is to popularize UN-CPI Index in all the cities of the world. Not to be mistaken by Consumer Price Index,  CPI, City Prosperity Index is UN-Habitat's urban development indicator applied in over 500 cities around the world, a tool that provides metrics and data to evaluate urban development. A baseline of the current urban situation, the index contains six dimensions. It measures productivity, infrastructure, quality of life, equity and social inclusion, environmental sustainability and governance. Farook Mahmood says, "The aim of the CPI is to enable city authorities to identify opportunities and potential areas of intervention for their cities to become more prosperous."

His idea is to bring in positive urban transformation in times of continuous urban growth. He adds, "Through the evaluation of this index, cities can have a better understanding of themselves. It identifies the underlying problems, the strengths and weaknesses. It gives a snapshot of the current state of the city, paving the way for development by adapting the most efficient strategies for sustainable urban development."

Simultaneously, with the implementation of the Real Estate Regulatory Act (RERA), it is an icing on the cake. He comments, "The Real Estate Regulatory Act (RERA) and other policy changes help in improving accountability and transparency. For, FIABCI RERA is a positive step and the best thing that has happened to the real estate industry. Especially for HNIs, investors and funds, they will see this as a more pro-active, transparent and deeper way of doing business. With the act in place, it will keep the developers on their toes and consumers will not be taken for granted anymore." He is quick to add, "India is far better than the global market and regulatory changes will attract global investors to Indian real estate market."
