For the first time, the Report explores the role of culture for sustainable urban development. It analyses the situation, trends, threats and existing opportunities in different regional contexts, and presents a global picture of tangible and intangible urban heritage conservation and safeguarding, along with the promotion of cultural and creative industries as a basis for sustainable urban development. The report brings together two years of research, showcasing analyses and recommendations to foster the role of culture in sustainable development. Goal 11 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is to make cities inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable.
