Implementing the New Urban Agenda (iNUA)

In October 2016, country and city representatives agreed on the New Urban Agenda (NUA) in Quito, which forms an ambitious baseline for sustainable urban development until 2030. GIZ-SUTP is contributing to the NUA by publishing a new Factsheet Series. The series addresses mayors and practitioners, outlines strategies that are crucial for realizing the objectives of the NUA and provides very practical recommendations for heading forward.

The compact 4-page documents are designed in a way, that mayors and decision-makers can rapidly gain an overview on the rationale and the practicability of the presented tool, measure or strategic approach. This is followed by practical recommendations on how to initiate implementation and further selected sources on the specific issue.

The first SUTP iNUA Factsheet will focus on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans as a practical tool for identifying and shaping actions for sustainable mobility - oriented on high feasibility of implementation. SUMPs integrate well into overarching Urban Development Plans and strategies and follow an inclusive and participative approach.
