Cities Can: accelerating progress towards the SDGs

Thursday, June 10, 2021 - 15:00 (GMT+1)

City Cancer Challenge (C/Can) in partnership with Devex has released a new report, Accelerating progress towards the SDGs through city-led initiatives. In this special report, Devex and C/Can explore the challenges and best practices involved in implementing city-led initiatives to make them more meaningful and impactful, and the success factors that help replicate results and bring programmes to scale in a variety of sectors. To coincide with the release of the report, C/CanGeneva Cities Hub and UN Habitat, with the support of  Devex and UCLG (United Cities and Local Governments), will jointly host a special online event on 10 June. 

Cities Can - 10 June online event

A virtual interactive discussion will be held on 10 June highlighting the role of cities in accelerating progress toward the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The event will launch some of the key findings of a brand new report released by City Cancer Challenge Foundation and Devex.

Actors from different sectors and regions will reflect on the following questions among others:

  • What makes city-led initiatives successful?
  • What are the key challenges, and how are cities and their counterparts in the health and development community working to address these bottlenecks?

Join us as we explore how cities are contributing to the SDGs.
