This report focuses largely on urban innovation lessons drawn from the Guangzhou Award as they relate to the COVID-19 pandemic response and the eight SDGs under review at the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) in July 2021. To address interdependencies within the SDGs and the initiatives, the report has been grouped broadly into five areas for analysis and presentation of lessons learned. These five areas are:
1. Cities Taking a Measure of the SDGs
2. Cities Increasing Health and Well-being (SDG 1,2,3)
3. Cities Ensuring Sustainable Economic Growth and consumption ( SDG 8,12)
4. Cities Protecting the Climate and Environment (SDG 13)
5. Cities Building Just and Inclusive Societies (SDG 10,16)
Data, both spatial and qualitative information including best practices and community-based data, are relevant for tracking progress made and reporting on the implementation of the global agendas. Urban best practices come global, regional, national and local levels as well as private sector, NGOs, and UN entities.
Global Future Cities Programme is the platform which compiles best practices, stories, commentary and upcoming events that are published on the platform each day, delivering information on the implementation of the Global Future Cities Programme and 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development .
To contribute, an organization must register to become a partner of Global Future Cities Programme. Partners tap into a vast network of resources and convening power to create real and positive change for young people. By contributing knowledge resources, organizations will be recognized as a key contributing partners of the knowledge facility.
Partners may submit the following types of resources relevant to youth employment: publications, platforms, tools, blogs, videos, webinars and online courses, events, news, websites, databases as well as suggestions for smart search of external websites.
