The Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs, are a global framework to coordinate efforts around ending poverty and hunger, combating inequality and disease, and building a just and stable world. There are 17 goals in all, and all 193 nations represented at the U. N. agreed to them. One goal — Goal 11 — specifically aims to build cities that are “inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.” But one way or another, all of the SDGs intersect with work going on in cities.
