P. 2


            This publication on "Implementing SDG11 by connecting sustainability policies and urban planning practices
            through ICTs" has been developed within the framework of the United for Smart Sustainable Cities (U4SSC)
            initiative. This publication provides a study of the advantages of using ICTs to support the implementation of
            the  Sustainable  Development  Goals,  in  particular  SDG  11,  by  facilitating  the  missing  linkages  that  exist
            between sustainability policies and urban-planning practices through digitally-enabled urban actions.
