Sustainable Development Goal 11

Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities

Goal 11 seeks to make cities more inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. Goal 11 is underpinned by detailed targets and indicators.

The Australian Government is already making a significant contribution toward achievement of Goal 11 through key domestic initiatives such as the Smart Cities Plan, City Deals, the Smart Cities and Suburbs Program and the National Cities Performance Framework.

Voluntary National Review

Australia delivered its first Voluntary National Review on the 2030 Agenda at the United Nations High Level Political Forum in July 2018.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is made up of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and provides a roadmap for global development efforts.

Australia’s Voluntary National Review was coordinated across the Australian Government by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. It was an opportunity for Australia to showcase the work we are doing to give effect to the 2030 Agenda, both domestically and internationally.

The Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities led the development of a chapter for Australia’s Voluntary National Review on progress towards Sustainable Development Goal 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities).

Further information on the Australian Government’s work on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is available through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
