Rescuing SDG 11 for a Resilient Urban Planet: SDG 11 Synthesis Report for the High-Level Political Forum 2023

Sustainable Development Goal 11 (SDG 11) aims to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable. With urbanization accelerating globally, achieving this goal is critical for ensuring the wellbeing of urban populations and the overall health of our planet. The High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) 2023 presents an opportunity to assess progress, identify challenges, and outline actionable strategies to rescue and advance SDG 11.

Key Message :

  1. The risk of not achieving SDG 11 is high without scaled up action and investments, with considerable ripple impacts for the 2030 Agenda.
  2. The quality of life of current and future generations depends on sustainable cities and communities and people’s ability to pursue dignified, meaningful, and productive lives.
  3. Narrowing the great urban divide is essential for future global resilience. Cities may increasingly become more unequal, but also offer opportunities for greater convergence.
  4. Localizing the SDGs is a necessary ingredient to accelerate the 2030 Agenda, through scaled up local action, commitment, and mobilization.
  5. Accelerating transformative actions to prevent a collective failure in delivering SDG 11 is imperative. It is time to think, plan and act urban.
