About UNECE 3
  4. 4. § To improve the implementation and review of the 2030 Agenda, especially with regard to § production, management and use of data for policy and decision-making § improving policy coherence across all levels § Improving inter-sectoral, horizontal and vertical cooperation. § One of priority tasks under the 2030 Agenda is to develop better standards for the production, management and use of data and evidence in the policy process. § SDG 17: Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development. The role of UNECE in the context of SDG11 4
  5. 5. § Providing technical assistance to governments and municipalities, especially to countries with economies in transition (e.g. urban development and housing policies and projects) § Organize peer learning activities (e.g. the CUDHLM annual sessions, SDG11 Day, the Day of Cities, the Forum of Mayors, 7 October 2020) § Developing thematic publications (e.g. country profiles, city profiles) § Developing methodologies, standards, guidelines (e.g. the Key Performance Indicators for Smart and Sustainable Cities; guidelines to evidence-based policies). Example of activities 5
  6. 6. § Developed jointly by UNECE and ITU in the context of the United for Smart Sustainable Cities initiative associating 16 UN agencies § A baseline analysis that allows assessing “smartness” and “sustainability” of cities and tracking progress towards SDGs § 91 indicators divided in 3 areas: “Economy”, “Environment”, “Society” and Culture”/cross-cutting theme “ICTs” § Available free of charge; used by over 100 cities worldwide § KPIs review planned for 2020. 6 The Key Performance Indicators for Smart and Sustainable Cities (KPI4SSC)
  7. 7. § UNDA 10th tranche project : “Improving evidence-based policies on housing and urban development in countries with economies in transition” (Ukraine, Albania, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Bulgaria) § Primary end users: ministries § Approach to the KPI4SSC: a background for a discussion on improving measuring progress towards SDGs at all levels, improving policy design, improving coordination and collaboration between data producers, analysts and users at all levels, data handling/management reforms § Activities e.g.: capacity building workshops bringing together ministries National Statistical Offices, and city governments, on improving evidence- based policy-making; the production of guidelines to evidence-based policies. Technical assistance project 1 7
  8. 8. § UNDA 12th tranche project: “Smart Sustainable Cities for the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development and the New Urban Agenda in the UNECE Region: (Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Montenegro, Serbia)”. § End users: cities § Approach to the KPI4SSC: the evaluation of “smartness” and “sustainability” of cities supplemented with a set of recommendations on improving policy-making and developing sustainable infrastructure projects § Activities e.g.: development of Smart Sustainable City profiles, capacity- building workshops on (i) measuring progress towards SDGs using the KPI4SSC; (ii) innovative financing mechanisms bringing together municipalities, ministries, businesses and others. Technical assistance project 2 8
  9. 9. § UNECE implements the KPI4SSC in a “holistic”, comprehensive manner, in technical assistance projects that aim to improve the capacities of countries and cities to deliver the 2030 Agenda and to measure SDG. § It builds up on already existing processes and is essential to accelerate progress towards the realization of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. § When implementing the KPI4SSC, we swear to § Be honest and transparent about the limits of the KPI4SSC § Respect and capture the diversity of ongoing efforts in countries and cities § Feed into key ongoing and planned activities § Be neutral and bring ALL relevant stakeholders to the table, keep the discussion technical, open and neutral § Build on already existing, local knowledge and expertise; and cross-sectoral networks and relationships to scale-up development efforts. UNECE approach to KPI4SSC 9
  10. 10. 10 § The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development requires attributing new roles to cities in a multilateral context (where the national governments have long been seen as the key actors). § UNECE works more and more at the global/national/local interface! § Standardization and the development of Information and Telecommunication Technologies are the driving forces for smart and sustainable urban development. § They play important role in guiding progress towards realization of the 2030 Agenda. However, for them to be impactful, they need to be adequatly contextualized! § Only contextualisation of standards allows generating comprehensive policy responses that are able to successfully accelerate progress towards the realization of the 2030 Ageda for Sustainable Development.
