The SDSN Italia SDGs City Index two years later: update Report

Two years after the publication of the first SDGs City Index in Italy, SDSN Italia and Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei have released new data, updated to 2020. The new Report provides not only a screenshot of Italian cities’ distance to the targets of the 2030 Agenda, but also a comparison, where possible, among performances over a two-year time frame.Through the collection of data for 103 Italian municipalities-capitals of provinces, and based on 46 elementary indicators on 16 out of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Report is a tool to increase the awareness of civil societies on the sustainability level of their territories, and at the same time to support local administrators in their decision making.The Report finds that there is no city, amongst those analysed, which has reached more than 80% of overall sustainability: therefore, there is a real need for a greater and active involvement in the local sphere if Italy is to fully implement the SDGs.
