Getting Started with the SDGs in Cities

Guidance and systemization of experiences , Available in Español

Getting Started with the SDGs in Cities outlines how cities can get started with implementing the SDGs in cities and human settlements. The handbook provides general principles and processes that will need to be adapted to local conditions. Case examples are drawn from cities in low- to high-income countries, and an effort has been made to frame guidelines that can be applied across all territories. Chapter 1 provides an introduction to the SDGs, explains the role of cities and human settlements in achieving sustainable development, and briefly describes the process of SDG localization. Chapter 2 jumps right into the process of how to get started with SDG implementation, providing step-by-step suggestions for local authorities and stakeholders as they define, plan and implement strategies for achieving the SDGs. Chapter 3 delves deeper into the SDG localization process, providing an overview of the enabling local conditions that will support implementation.
