SDG 11: Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable by 2030
WHY IT MATTERS
Pressures on housing supply and the consequent increasing house prices and rents and the high incidence of homelessness are some of the most pressing challenges currently facing Ireland. For all of us to survive and prosper, we need new, intelligent urban planning that creates safe, affordable and resilient cities with green and culturally inspiring living conditions. Other common urban challenges include congestion, lack of funds to provide basic services, declining infrastructure and rising air pollution.
