Sustainable Cities and Communities
Half of humanity, 3.5 billion people, lives in cities today.
828 million people live in slums today and the number keeps rising.
Rapid urbanization is exerting pressure on fresh water supplies, sewage, the living environment, and public health.
What does #SustainableCities and #Communities mean as a goal?
We have a couple of targets that we are trying to hit by 2030, the world’s major deadline. Meaning, if we hit them, we achieve the overall goal.
1.) Every person has a decent housing.
By 2030, ensure access for all to adequate, safe and affordable housing and basic services and upgrade slums.
2.) Development of sustainable cities and rural settlements.
By 2030, enhance inclusive and sustainable urbanization and capacity for participatory, integrated and sustainable human settlement planning and management in all countries.
3.) Protect vulnerable communities from disasters.
By 2030, significantly reduce the number of deaths and the number of people affected and substantially decrease the direct economic losses relative to global gross domestic product caused by disasters, including water-related disasters, with a focus on protecting the poor and people in vulnerable situations
