ICLEI SDGs Briefing Sheets: 04 - The importance of all Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for cities and communities

Concept notes and papers , Available in Deutsch

The newly adopted Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) recognize that global development issues, including poverty and hunger, will not be solved without leadership. A dedicated goal (SDG 11) focused on cities and human settlements, calls for the leadership of local governments, yet the role of local actors extends beyond achieving the SDG 11. This briefing sheet aims to describe the importance of cities and human settlements in attaining all 17 goals by 2030. It is divided into 17 separate briefs, providing the major cross-cutting links between sustainable development, urbanization and local governance.
