This publication is also available in German:
Europa, Deutschland und Indien – SDG 11 "Nachhaltige Städte und Gemeinden" in räumlicher Perspektive

Responding to crucial challenges in urban and rural development the United Nations decided on the New Urban Agenda and on the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This publication checks the progress made in implementing the New Urban Agenda against the SDGs and vice versa.

In order to understand the spatial patterns, a national and supranational spatial perspective is taken on some of the SDGs. Given the cross-sectoral nature of cities and communities and their sustainable and resilient development, SDG 11 constitutes an interconnection point and thus covers:

  • Adequate and affordable housing
  • Level of motorisation and traffic casualties
  • Land-use and protected landscapes as well as connection to public water supply and waste in its broadest sense
