VI Sustainable Cities and Communities

This sixth theme focusses on the local level: sustainability of cities and communities. An increasing share of the world's population lives in cities, which in the global south face many challenges due to rapid growth and weak social services. Meanwhile livelihood in rural areas faces challenges with increasing poverty. This theme relates to SDG 6, 9 and 11 and includes 4 topic groups:

6a Land Use and Planning
6b Urban and Rural Development
6c Infrastructure and Transportation
6d Water and Sanitation
