America’s cities are home to more than 80 percent of Americans and around 85 percent of
US production. They will determine the future of sustainable development in the United States.
Around the US, more and more cities are signing up to the Sustainable Development Goals
(SDGs) as a framework for action.

The 2019 US Cities Sustainable Development Report aims to help cities to calibrate their progress towards the SDGs. This report, produced annually since 2017, is a part of a global effort to measure performance of cities, nations, and companies relative to the SDGs underway at the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN). SDSN is grateful to many partner institutions
for collaboration, brainstorming, and support to monitor the SDGs and implement programs for their achievement.
