Connecting cities and communities with the SDGs

Guidance and systemization of experiences

This publication on “Connecting cities and communities with the SDGs" has been developed within the framework of the United for Smart Sustainable Cities (U4SSC) initiative. This publication provides an overview of how cities can use information and communication technologies (ICTs) to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It also maps the case studies to the various international agreements as well as the SDGs. Based on the mapping in this publication, U4SSC aims to derive the best practices and guidelines with the final goal of propelling transitions to smart cities while simultaneously achieving the SDGs. The outputs presented are expected to provide urban stakeholders with an overview of innovative concepts, policies and frameworks that have been adopted in various countries, to facilitate smart-city transformations. The United for Smart Sustainable Cities (U4SSC) initiative is a distinctive global smart-city platform. This unique initiative launched by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) in May 2016, is supported by 16 United Nations agencies, programmes and secretariats.
