Impact Check

You have identified various potential measures to foster the sustainable transformation of your city. Now it is time to analyse the impact of those measures with a view to global agenda implementation to help decide which ones should be considered further.

Goal

Impact assessment of potential measures regarding their contribution to global sustainability agendas.

Tasks

Use the template from the material section below and list the potential measures that may be relevant to the local implementation of the global agendas in your city. To understand which impacts these measures may have discuss the following questions:

  • Does the measure or action contribute positively to the achievement of the SDGs? If so, to which one(s)?
  • Does it contribute negatively? If so, to which SDGs?
  • Does the measure have a strongly positive / positive / neutral / negative / strongly negative contribution to the mitigation of climate change?
  • Does the measure have a strongly positive / positive / neutral / negative / strongly negative contribution to the adaptation to climate change?
  • Does the measure have a strongly positive / positive / neutral / negative / strongly negative contribution to the disaster risk reduction?
  • Does the measure contribute to the commitments of the New Urban Agenda? If so, to which one(s)?

Moreover, discuss the following questions:

  • Can the measure be adapted/improved in light of the implementation principles of the 2030 Agenda, i.e. leave no one behind, shared responsibilities, accountability, integrated approach, and universality? How?
  • Can the measure be adapted/improved to maximise synergies and avoid trade-offs? How?
