Increasing the quality of life is one of the key objectives of Saudi Vision 2030, through several axes focusing on humans and their surrounding environment, to create a living space that is conducive to health, safety and sustainable living. Such an environment ensures better livelihoods, greater productivity, and efficient service provision while protecting the environment and reducing pollution levels. Increasing the quality of life requires action through two parallel tracks: developing existing cities and creating new ones.
