Why did we select this research?
The study explores how city leaders can promote a local sharing economy that are inclusive of all their residents.
The authors argue that cities would be better served leveraging the sharing economy to create new opportunities for the urban poor, and are well positioned to do so. They propose creating multistakeholder roundtables to map out the local sharing-economy landscape, identifying gaps and barriers to participation, and proposing strategies to make the sharing economy work for everyone.
