On July 15, 2016, the SDSN, Ford Foundation, the Office of the Mayor of New York City, and 100 Resilient Cities co-convened a workshop on SDG localization. The workshop provided an opportunity to reflect on a range of practical tools to support implementation, including a new SDSN guide for cities getting started with the SDGs.
Jointly developed by SDSN and the German government, “Getting Started with the SDGs in Cities” outlines how cities can get started with implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in cities and human settlements which will be key to achieving the global SDGs. The SDGs come into effect in a world that is increasingly urban, with a little over half the global population now living in cities. Urbanization has thrown up some of the world’s greatest development challenges, but it also has tremendous opportunities for advancing sustainable development. https://sdgcities.guide/
