Cities and the SDGs: a spotlight on urban settlements

Vortrag von Dr. Anna Kosovac und Daniel Pejic, Melbourne Centre for Cities, The University of Melbourn

By 2050, 70% of the world population is predicted to live in urban settlements (UN Habitat, 2020). It is no wonder then that the United Nations has taken note and is acknowledging cities now more than ever (Kosovac et al, 2019), and nothing expresses the need for a better quality of life for the urbanizing world more than the inclusion of a ‘cities’ focus in the Sustainable Development Goals. The sustainable development goals, taking the place of the former Millennium Development Goals, diverged from its predecessor through the creation of a specific city-focused aspect of its agenda: SDG 11 (Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable). This lecture discusses the intricacies of this goal, the pressure to create an ‘urban’ focus, and its intersections with other SDGs and Agenda 2030.
