In a broad sense inclusive development is to engage of all social groups (including the most vulnerable) and territories in solving the political, social, economic, environmental, cultural problems of countries (regions). The result of such development should be minimizing / overcoming social and spatial differentiation, equal distribution of income and resources, their conservation and renovation, the inclusion of periphery and less developed territories, that will certainly be accompanied by improvements in the quality of life. The aim of the paper is to determine the essence and directions of the concept of inclusive urban development, to illustrate the features of implementing different models of city development in Stockholm, Berlin, Barcelona and Dubai, and to formulate conclusions on the moving these cities in the direction of inclusiveness and environmental wellness. The research uses a deductive research strategy in which literature analysis and author’s personal observations are combined with case studies of four cities promoting effective sustainable (smart, creative, ecological, etc.) development agendas. The chorological, historical, systemic-structural approaches, abstract-logical, comparative-geographical and other methods are used in the research. The scientific novelty of the paper is to define the term “inclusive development” as well as importance of integrating environmental priorities into urban development policy, characterizing the successful practices of the three European and one Asian cities in the context of accompanying problems and benefits should be taken into account by other countries.The paper closes with conclusions about those characteristics and their role in sustainable city policy making.
