decl_img Mayors, city networks and urban stakeholders worldwide call for an IPCC Special Report on Cities and Climate Change
Cities are already facing the impacts of climate change and are highly vulnerable to a range of climate hazards, including sea level rise, street flooding, landslides, droughts, epidemics and severe heat waves, which threaten the heath, well-being and livelihood of citizens. Cities are integral to fighting climate change; while they are responsible for 37–49% of global GHG emissions, and urban infrastructure accounts for over 70% of global energy use, research shows that urban policy decisions made by 2020 could determine up to a third of the remaining global carbon budget that is not already ‘locked-in’ by past decisions.

Aromar Revi Delivers Keynote Address to UN Habitat Governing Council
Aromar Revi, Director of the Indian Institute for Human Settlements, delivered the keynote address at the 25th session of the UN-Habitat Governing Council. In Nairobi, Revi warned that the “world is deeply unprepared” to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – largely expected to be adopted by the UN General Assembly this September. He cautioned that nations and cities will be severely challenged to integrate and achieve sustainable development within current frameworks. To achieve, Revi acknowledged that the world will need new global and local partnerships, new governance and fiscal arrangements and increased multi-stakeholder knowledge and capacity. Cities are uniquely situated to address some of these arrangements and Revi offered six key messages: 1) cities and regions are vital for successful SDG implementation; 2) Goal 11- the Urban SDG, is a powerful integrating opportunity; 3) financing for development (Ffd) will need to be localized; 4) local governments and communities need to included and recognized at September’s SDG Summit; 5) cities will be the front runners of implementation; and 6) geospatial monitoring and evaluation techniques are needed. Although we can almost live with Goal 11 as the OWG proposed, namely “making cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable”, Revi argued that they must also be productive where all citizens have access to meaningful jobs and reliable public goods and services.

Onenyc: New York City Releases New Sustainable Development Plan
On 22nd April 2015, Earth Day, Mayor Bill de Blasio released New York city’s new sustainable development strategy OneNYC This strategy builds on past New York sustainability plans established under former Mayor Bloomberg (PlaNYC), but goes further weaving in a strong focus on equity and social justice. The plan presents a roadmap for an integrated urban sustainable development strategy, aligned with the global SDG process. Professor Jeffrey Sachs served as co-chair of the Sustainability Advisory Board, overseeing the plan’s development. Professor Sachs and colleagues at SDSN expect to be deeply involved in supporting the plan’s implementation and roll-out over the months ahead and will endeavor to create platforms to showcase OneNYC as one of the world’s first integrated urban sustainable development strategies, aligned with the global SDGs.
SDSN Releases “Data for Development: A Needs Assessment for SDG Monitoring and Statistical Capacity Development”
The discussion on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has renewed interest in strengthening the quality and availability of statistics for management, program design and monitoring performance. The Financing for Development Summit in July 2015 presents a crucial opportunity to make the case for increased investments in development data, but to do so the statistical community need agree upon a robust estimate of resource needs. This study, prepared by a broad coalition of data for development experts convened by SDSN, attempts to respond to that challenge. “Data for Development: A Needs Assessment for SDG Monitoring and Statistical Capacity Development” estimates that the IDA-eligible countries will need to spend $1 billion a year to upgrade their statistical systems and carry out regular data collection for the SDGs. Donors must maintain current contributions to statistics, of approximately US$300 million per annum, and go further, leveraging US$100-200 million more in Official Development Assistance (ODA) to support country efforts. For their part, recipient countries must commit to fill the gap, mobilizing domestic resources behind clear national strategies for the development of statistics (NSDSs).Both donors and recipient countries must look to join the data revolution. The unprecedented rate of innovation in data collection techniques and technologies and the capacity to distribute data widely and freely has expanded the horizon of possibility. The adoption of the SDGs presents a strategic opportunity to realize the data revolution and demonstrate the centrality of data for development. Please find the report or policy note here.

The Gold Standard New Framework for the Gold Standard Sustainable Cities Programme

The Gold Standard Sustainable Cities Programme is seeking comments and input in response to a new framework, through which cities can develop, audit and verify urban programmes in order to catalyse and scale up currently missing investment.  The new framework goes beyond strictly GHG-driven interventions, allowing funding agencies and developers the flexibility to include activities with significant social benefits independent of their associated GHGs emission reductions. For example, providing access to clean water can result in GHGs emission reductions and deliver a critical health service to a local community. This public consultation is open until 06 February 2015. All responses should go to by this date. More information can be found here and here.

  Communitas Coalition Releases Revised Targets and Indicator Options for the Urban SDG:
In July 2014, the Communitas Coalition for Sustainable Cities and Regions produced a Matrix of Targets & Indicators as a practical tool for the final session of the SDGs Open Working Group. The matrix outlines the proposed targets under SDG 11 in rows, as well as the latest iteration of proposals elaborated by the Communitas Secretariat on 3rd June. Each target is correlated with possible indicators. The ultimate objective of the matrix was to show how the inclusion of existing targets under SDG 11 could already address additional areas of particular importance to Sustainable Cities & Human Settlements.

130101-SDSN_logo_final-300x122 SDSN to host High Level event bringing together City Leaders and Ambassadors to the UN:
On Monday 22nd September SDSN will host a high level luncheon for Mayors, Permanent Representatives to the United Nations, leaders from the private sector and technical experts to consider the potential offered by an SDG on Sustainable Cities. As recognized by the Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals, a dedicated and stand-alone goal on sustainable cities and human settlements is essential to mobilize stakeholders, promoted integrated, city-level approaches, and accelerate progress towards sustainable development, including the end of extreme poverty. The second issue for discussion will be the role that cities can play in helping to implement the whole SDG agenda. The contours of urban economies and societies demand new forms of governance and policy making in comparison to traditional agrarian or mixed societies. Higher population densities require concentrated investments in physical, natural and social infrastructure, careful conservation, restoration and management of ecosystem services and building greater resilience against external shocks. Managing cities with such diversity of size, scope and character requires resilient and innovative institutions, flexible policies and a cadre of interdisciplinary professions with a wide range of skills. Many lessons can be learnt from these new approaches to policy-making and governance, which can guide the implementation of an integrated SDG agenda.
