Online Course: Cities and the Challenge of Sustainable Development

Tools

Cities are a core component of the UN’s 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development. This mini-series is a companion piece to the SDG Academy's full-length Sustainable Cities course and also serves as a brief introduction to the topic of urban sustainable development and the SDGs.

And what types of challenges do local governments face in adapting to new technologies, energy systems, modes of transportation and more?
