SDG 11 Sustainable Cities and Communities
The SDG 11 is a universal and urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable by 2030. The goal, being adopted in 2015 is a follow-up of the partially achieved millennium goals.
Among others, this goal includes the insurance of access for all to adequate, safe and affordable housing, access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport systems, the reduction of the adverse per capita environmental impact of cities, and universal access to safe, inclusive and accessible, green and public spaces. The creativity, know-how, technology and financial resources from all of society is necessary to achieve SDG 11 in every context.
