Goal 11: Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable

11 - Sustainable cities and communities

Half of humanity—3.5 billion people—live in cities today, and this number will continue to grow. Cities have great potential to enable people to advance socially and economically, but inequality is a big concern. 828 million people live in slums, energy consumption and pollution are rising, and many cities are vulnerable to climate change. 

By supporting high quality carbon finance projects, businesses can deliver essential emission reductions and support low carbon sustainable development in areas most in need.

Example carbon finance project activities that aim to facilitate sustainable community development:
  • Construct and/or upgrade local community health centres and services and provide personnel training (Target 11.1)
  • Improve community access to basic services like healthcare, lighting, education, etc. (Target 11.1)
  • Distribute fuel-efficient cookstoves to reduce air quality impacts, especially in towns and cities (Target 11.6)

Projects that align with SDG 11: Sustainable cities

A number of carbon finance projects support households and communities to access fundamental amenities and adopt improved technologies to both improve livelihoods and reduce environmental impact. 

Below are a sample of such projects. If you'd like to find out more about a particular project, follow the link.
