  • Ensuring access for all to housing and basic services and improving slums
  • Provide access to safe, affordable, accessible transportation systems, by expanding public transportation
  • Increase inclusive and sustainable urbanization, along with the capability for participatory planning and management
  • Protect and safeguard the world's cultural and natural heritage

Lessons Learnt

We have analyzed the literature and extracted the following ideas on how technologies are favouring this SDG.
See also what we propose and tell us what you think


Significant reduction in traffic accidents thanks to the use of intelligent traffic management systems. Understand how it works, detect existing problems and make decisions by evaluating how one part can affect the rest


Intensify the development of Apps focused on the dissemination of information and the use of city services. Complement with VR / AR and establish two-way communication channels


Data is a source of value for the development of services and the creation of advanced profiles of citizens. Take a unified approach to semantic annotation and storage, and apply machine learning to measure the efficiency of services among other aspects


Adopt 'best transparency practices' and service agreements between public and private institutions


Focus on the objectives of efficient transport, less noise and air pollution, and the conservation of open and cultural spaces, may benefit sustainable tourism


The use of drones and IoT is especially suitable to act in emergency situations as it helps emergency / rescue services by reducing personal risks


The proposed actions on which we introduce an opinion poll for this SDG, are described below:

Poll for SDG-11

The analyses of interrelationships between emerging technologies & AI, and the possibilities they offer to pursue the SDGs, led us to propose a series of actions and/or potential projects to develop.
