Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
A piece of excellent news is that we can proudly celebrate the inclusion of SDG11 — “Make cities and human settlements safe, inclusive, resilient and sustainable” — among the 17 SDGs. Today, cities are home to half of the world’s population and three quarters of its economic output, and these figures will rise dramatically over the next few decades. With the inclusion of SDG11 in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the international community is recognizing that urban development, with its power to trigger transformative change, can and must be at the forefront of human development.
Moreover, since the 17 SDGs constitute an indivisible and integrated framework, the international community is also acknowledging that the achievement of SDG11 can accelerate the pace for achieving the other SDGs — and vice-versa. This means that sustainable urban development at the city and regional scale is understood as inextricably interlinked with the other drivers for sustainable human development — with the other 16 SDGs.
