Abstract

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are
a global compact, but it is in cities where the
work of sustainable development gets done. As
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti says, the SDGs
are about us, and they start at home. But while
city governments can lead, we cannot achieve
the SDGs alone. Measuring and reporting our
progress are done with tools, but they will not get
us to the future we want without new initiatives
and more capacity to build on and sustain them.
And with most governments’ budgets strained
already, translating the Global Goals into local
action must add value, not burden.
