Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities

What is SDGs Goal 11?

SDGs Goal 11 is “Sustainable Cities and Communities,” with its mission statement being “Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.”

The goal has ten targets and 14 indicators measuring the sustainability of many aspects of the cities and communities. These targets include ensuring access to adequate, safe, and affordable housing and basic services, safeguarding the world’s cultural and natural heritage, and lowering the environmental impact of cities, including air quality and waste management.

Sustainable Cities and Communities in Nigeria
Many of Nigeria’s concerns about the sustainability of cities and communities are linked to the population imbalance. On one side, people are moving away from rural areas into cities for convenience, education and job employment, endangering the local economies. On the other, the overpopulation in major cities stresses the infrastructure and systems, like areas of well-being and consumption.

Regional Revitalization continues to be a big topic in Nigeria, in an attempt to protect rural communities and their cultural heritage. New lifestyles and workstyles are also being explored as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Of course, as consumption centers, there are pockets of cities that are pushing sustainability. There are businesses and brands making the shift towards becoming more sustainable, while more ambitious ones are trying to redesign the way we consume in cities. Well-being is also a major theme.
