Baltimore’s Sustainable Future: Localizing the UN Sustainable Development Goals, Strategies and Indicators

Case studies and best practices

In 2015, as part of a program called the USA Sustainable Cities Initiative (USA-SCI), Baltimore was selected as one of three US cities to pilot implementation of 17 SDGs. The Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance and the College of Public Affairs at the University of Baltimore took the lead to build the infrastructure needed for multi-sector stakeholders to provide substantive, locally-grounded input into the initiative to establish quantitative targets for sustainable development in Baltimore. The project team conducted a range of consultative meetings and adopted a “listening-to-the-listening” approach to ensure inclusive engagement and non-duplication of effort and resources. Summarized in the final report are the accomplishments of SCI-Baltimore during this first year of the SDGs. A set of 56 indicators were formulated through a consultative process that considered SDG-aligned development efforts, stakeholder data needs and community aspirations. The Baltimore SDG Executive Team was established and working group events were convened to consult local organizations, experts and authorities on the stocktaking exercise and indicator development, and to establish a community of practice to coordinate and promote SDG achievement over the long term. Activities under SCI-Baltimore established a comprehensive suite of indicators for all stakeholders in Baltimore to continuously track and measure progress toward SDG achievement. In addition to the efforts of the Mayor’s office, to continue to track and implement the SDGs in Baltimore, several activities have taken root. http://www.ubalt.edu/about-ub/sustainable-cities/
