Targets and Indicators: ZERO DRAFT TARGETS (Dec 2013)

Fundamental Urban Patterns
By 2030,
1. All city-regions have adopted policies aimed at enhancing urban den-
sity and halving the current rate of conversion of additional green?eld land for urban development.
2. Secure access to jobs, goods and services within 30 minutes by public transport, walking and/or cycling for nearly all urban households.
3. Develop strategies that consolidate and reinforce existing urban assets in order to preserve and enhance the physical and social assets in cities and to integrate social and cultural infrastructure early in the planning and design of the physical environment.
4. Invest in green infrastructure at the city region scale for social cohesion and community resilience.
5. All city-regions have a tree canopy covering at least 20% of their area meeting the WHO’s suggested minimum of 9 square meters open space per resident.
6. Collect cross-sectoral baseline data for all cities with population greater than one million, to understand resource consumption and monitor performance.

An Urban Life of Dignity for All within Planetary Boundaries
By 2030,
1. Provide universal access to affordable shelter served by basic, urban public services for urban slum dwellers and public credit schemes for the urban poor to support shelter and livelihoods.
2. Guarantee safe affordable drinking water and basic sanitation to all urban households.
3. Invest in capacity building and skills with a focus on youth and women unemployed or locked into the urban informal economy.
4. At least halve air pollution from passenger and freight transport, to reach peak global transport GHG emissions by 2020 at the latest, with an ultimate vision of achieving 40-60% reductions by 2050 compared to 2005 levels.
5. At least halve traf?c-related deaths with an ultimate vision of near zero fatalities.
6. Double the total investment in green technologies and ICT applications to adopt community-based data collection systems in order to guide planning and program development for universal access to services, in particular for the urban poor and informal workers.
7. By 2030 increase by 50% the number of countries with social inclusion policies, following multi-level governance and multi-actor approaches and contributing to the decentralization process, mainly ?scal.

Enabling Policies
By 2030,
1. All city-regions have develop preemptive and resilient urban design strategies to compensate for known and unknown crises.
2. At least 50% of subnational and local authorities have developed, broadly disseminated and established institutional mechanisms for disaster response plans aimed at minimizing human suffering and rapidly restoring lifeline services.
3. Redirect subsidies to fossil fuel and resource-based industries by 10% per annum towards sustainable economic sectors relevant to each country in order to foster its internal social and territorial cohesion.
4. Promote and empower monitoring systems and peer-reviews among city-region partners revolving around the achievement of the SDGs at the local level, harnessing the work of networks of cities and subnational and local authorities.

Territorial Dimension of other Sustainable Development Policies
By 2030,
1. Increase by x% city-regions that have identi?ed, inventoried and completed condition assessments of major ecosystems within their region.
2. All city-regions undertake vulnerability assessments of current and future climate and other disaster risks, and 50% of city-regions in both developed and developing countries adopt adaptation strategies informed by rigorous vulnerability assessments, that prioritize vulnerable populations and major ecosystem integrity.
3. Integrate non-food and food ecosystem planning at the city-region level in disaster risk management and climate action plans.
4. Adopt multi-level inclusive and transparent governance mechanisms to link urban-rural planning and implementation, empowering fair and inclusive trade for city-region food systems and expanding employment opportunities in the food chain from farm-to-table, for markets of all kinds.

Governance & Accountability
By 2030,
1. Incorporate participatory mechanisms such as spaces of deliberation, citizen audits, participatory budgeting, community-based data collection in the strategic planning of cities, ensuring the involvement of the most disadvantaged groups, including slum dwellers.
2. Hold all levels of government and governmental agencies accountable against sustainability performance outcomes vis-a-vis the triple bottom line – environmental protection, economic development, and social equity and achieve greater coordination between all levels of government and agencies responsible for key public services.
3. Across all levels of government, monitor and end discrimination and inequalities based on gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, national origin, and social or other status in public service delivery, the respect for the rule of law, access to justice, and participation in political and economic life.
4. Guarantee the participation of subnational and local authorities in the decision-making spaces of the Global Governance Framework for the post-2015 Development Agenda.
