Cities - The engines for implementing the Sustainable Development Goals
Cities play a critical role in advancing sustainability through the actual implementation of solutions that bring together the social, environmental and economic aspects of development.
While there are many data collection and indicator reporting efforts in Canada for cities, none of them are structured and visualized to help understand both sustainable development trends and progress with Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) implementation. IISD’s tool makes use of official statistics to provide easy access to SDG indicator trends in major Canadian cities. Data are provided in time series and normalized to make comparisons between cities easy. The charts provide a snapshot of progress toward SDG implementation in Canadian cities as well as overall sustainability.
