Issue briefs from the Open Working Group on SDGs: Sustainable Cities

Ahead of the 5th session of the Open Working Group (OWG) on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the OWG’s Technical Support Team have released a series of briefs, the first three of which you can see here. The latest is entitled ‘Sustainable cities and human settlements’. The  brief conducts a stock-taking, looking at the social, economic and environmental challenges and pressures generated by urbanisation;  provides an overview of existing proposals on urbanisation (such as the UN SDSN and UN Habitant reports) and appraises “the way forward”.

You can access the brief here.
