The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is made up of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals – a roadmap for global development efforts and beyond. Visit Australia’s Sustainable Development Goals page for more information.

Australia will deliver its first Voluntary National Review on the 2030 Agenda at the United Nations High Level Political Forum in July 2018.  The Review will provide an opportunity for Australia to showcase the work we are doing to give effect to the 2030 Agenda, both domestically and internationally.

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.
