Call for Expression of Interest: Pilot City on Localizing SDGs

Integrating the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into local action in support of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda in Asia and the Pacific

UN ESCAP and UN-Habitat invite cities and towns in Asia and the Pacific to join the project “Integrating the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into local action in support of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda in Asia and the Pacific”.

The aim of this multi-year project is to assist pilot cities in undertaking a participatory process that works towards transforming their urban resource management into more sustainable systems. Through a locally-driven co-learning process, urban stakeholders will strengthen evidence-based and integrated decision-making approaches. The focus is on jointly initiating or revising a local plan or initiative and implementing prioritized activities that enhance sustainable urban resource management and contribute to the city’s progress on the 2030 Agenda.

Around the world, cities are facing #environmentalhazards like extreme #heat, #landslides, #pollution, and #flooding. To enhance #resilience to #climatechange impacts, cities must monitor and address these hazards. Earth observations can help cities understand and enhance urban resilience and make better decisions for planning, urban #greening, monitoring, and more.

This 3-part, introductory webinar series will provide an overview of the Earth Observations Toolkit for Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements, an online knowledge resource that shares ready-to-use Earth observation data sets and tools. These resources can be applied in policy areas that are important to resilient and sustainable cities. Such areas include sustainable urban planning, adequate #housing, access to #publictransport, and access to public spaces.
