Bristol and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. An Assessment of strategic alignment, data and delivery gaps in Bristol

Case studies and best practices

This report was intended to help kick-start thinking on the SDGs in the city of Bristol. It highlights areas that are being reasonably well-addressed and others that could benefit from greater attention. It also offers some constructive thoughts for next steps. Localisation of the SDGs is occurring as countries and some cities engage with the sustainable development agenda.Therefore, The city of Bristol in the southwest of the UK has a reputation as being relatively wealthy and environmentally aware; however, despite its successes, it displays the same disparity and inequalities within it as other cities worldwide. This report assesses in which areas Bristol is performing well, and which targets it might be furthest from achieving. The report also appraises the SDGs as a framework for tackling sustainability challenges at a city-scale in Bristol.
