Implementing the New Urban Agenda and SDGs: comparative urban perspectives

Case studies and best practices

These ‘City Briefs’ are based on the inception phase of Mistra Urban Futures’ comparative project: ‘Implementing the New Urban Agenda and The Sustainable Development Goals: Comparative Urban Perspectives’. Cities participating to date in the comparative project are Cape Town (South Africa), Sheffield (UK), Gothenburg (Sweden), Kisumu (Kenya) as well as new partners in Shimla (India) (through the social enterprise, Nagrika) and Buenos Aires (Argentina) (through the New School’s Observatory on Latin America). An in-depth analysis and research is being carried out in each city, in parallel with a comparative component, with all cities involved in cross-city learning and interaction. The following ‘City Briefs’ provide an introduction to the case cities and a glimpse of how these cities and their respective countries have started to engage with the two international agendas (SDGs and NUA). We have also selected a brief analysis of the only Tier 1 indicators (as of April 2017) of the urban SDG (SDG 11). This initial analysis shows that even for Tier 1 indicators, methodologies are not straightforward (especially in the case of indicator 11.1.1) and data availability is limited at the city level. The briefs also show that engagement with the New Urban Agenda in our case cities has been very limited thus far. Most cities, however, have already started to actively engage and adapt the SDGs to the local level.
