    Overview of the Project Opportunity

    Support the implementation of the SDGs in North American cities by engaging in this fascinating project. The team will review the vast and important Community Indicator projects to develop a capacity index for adopting the SDGs in North American cities.

    The Problem this Project Addresses

    City level efforts at implementing the SDGs in North America are not incentivized by National level policy. Therefore Cities and local organizations have to incur the cost and resource capacity to integrate and implement SDG goals and targets. SDGs offer excellent and objective goals and targets that offer alignment and partnership opportunities for local communities and cities.
