The Paris Agreement, UN SDG 11 of the 2030 Agenda, and the New Urban Agenda all serve as national urban policy frameworks for sustainable urban development and tools for their localization. Where each country is responsible for the implementation of the global agreements locally, local governments are responsible for the implementation of SDG 11.

The New Urban Agenda serves as a qualitative toolbox for the accomplishment of the 2030 Agenda in municipalities and the formulation of national urban policy.  SDG 11 focuses on national urban policy and targets sustainable urban development and planning and provides detailed indicators.

The primary responsibility for urban management, public services delivery, and key infrastructure is borne by local governments.  Municipal governments are generally responsible and accountable to citizens in their jurisdiction for the planning, construction, development, management and improvement of urban areas.

The New Urban Agenda is intended as a resource for different actors in the various levels of government and for the private sector, civil society organizations, and all who use urban spaces.  The territorial approach to local development (TALD) calls for a coherent and integrated national urban policy that considers the city in its regional context.

The initiatives require new urban rules and regulations, improved urban planning and design, and municipal finance.  They call for consultation and inclusion of all actors and stakeholders in the process, including partnerships with business and civil society to find sustainable solutions to the urban challenges.

Open, user-friendly and participatory data platforms interface research in urban and territorial planning and policy formulation.  They support local stakeholders in defining local government policy for the sustainable development of urban space.

The tools are intended to broaden inclusive platforms and provide an interface among stakeholders.  They facilitate engagement by local government associations, encourage peer-to-peer learning and offer opportunities for dialog for collaborative action, e­‑government strategies and citizen-centric digital governance.
