SDG 11

Sustainable cities and communities

The city of the future must provide opportunities for everyone through innovation and progress, including access to basic services such as clean drinking water, housing, energy, transport and more. Sustainable growth is the biggest challenge for the cities of the future. Despite the large number of people living in the cities, all cities cover only three percent of all land area. Yet the cities can make a big difference: they account for about 60-80 percent of all energy consumption and about 75 percent of carbon emissions.
