The SDGs at city level: Mumbai's example

Case studies and best practices

By identifying in what areas progress needs to be accelerated or existing trends reversed to achieve selected targets at city and slum settlement levels, we hope to provide a useful framework for analysis that can be replicated in other cities, and used by city government authorities and campaigners, to prioritise different areas and support a sense of urgency to act. This paper is structured as follows. Section 2 describes our approach; Section 3 provides a brief history of Mumbai’s slums; Section 4 presents SDG performance for selected targets in Mumbai and its slum settlements; and Section 5 concludes. Key messages: - How countries manage urbanisation over the next 15 years will define governments’ ability to achieve most of the Sustainable Development Goals. - Our analysis of performance over time (1998–2006) for three SDG targets in Mumbai (at city and slum settlement levels) suggests the target on access to water will be easier to achieve than the sanitation and housing targets. - However, data limitations at subnational level make it difficult to reach definite conclusions on trends over time, let alone to project performance through 2030 for these and other targets. - The SDGs provide an opportunity to set up-to-date credible baselines for cities and slums and to make historical data (where they exist) more accessible, for instance through user-friendly online portals. Having such data would highlight areas where progress needs to be accelerated or trends reversed, motivating city governments and campaigners to act.
