Malaysia SDG Cities

Overview

The Malaysia SDG Cities is a national initiative that unleashes the potential of cities in Malaysia to accelerate sustainable development and implement the New Urban Agenda. It recognizes that cities and communities are crucial in determining its own set of priorities and decides on the means of implementation to ensure that the SDG Goals and targets are met. 

The framework is set to encourage a bottom up approach in developing local action plans that will accelerate the SDGs achievements for Malaysia where the 17 SDGs and its 169 targets of the 2030 Sustainable Agenda must be achieved.
