Unscramble the Blue Letters

When it comes to inclusiveness, our ciiets are not the best cseas of seucscs either, and again, you don't need to look very far in order to find proof of that. The city of Rio is incredibly unequal. This is Leblon. lbloen is the city's richest neighborhood. And this is Complexo do Alemão. This is where over 70,000 of the city's poorest residents live. Leblon has an HDI, a Human dleenopmevt Index, of .967. That is higher than Norway, Switzerland or Sweden. clmpoexo do Alemão has an HDI of .711. It sits somewhere in between the HDI of aiegrla and Gabon. So Rio, like so many cities across the global South, is a place where you can go from northern Europe to sub-Saharan Africa in the space of 30 minutes. If you dvrie, that is. If you take public transit, it's about two hours.

When it comes to inclusiveness, our cities are not the best cases of success either, and again, you don't need to look very far in order to find proof of that. The city of Rio is incredibly unequal. This is Leblon. Leblon is the city's richest neighborhood. And this is Complexo do Alemão. This is where over 70,000 of the city's poorest residents live. Leblon has an HDI, a Human Development Index, of .967. That is higher than Norway, Switzerland or Sweden. Complexo do Alemão has an HDI of .711. It sits somewhere in between the HDI of Algeria and Gabon. So Rio, like so many cities across the global South, is a place where you can go from northern Europe to sub-Saharan Africa in the space of 30 minutes. If you drive, that is. If you take public transit, it's about two hours.
