North American countries are at a crossroads. Cities are struggling with multiple crisis amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic and the multiple effects of climate change. Vulnerable groups are hit by social, economic, and political challenges, resulting in devastating setbacks to advance inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable cities.


North American countries are off-track to achieve the SDGs by 2030 and urban areas are increasingly at risk struggling with deepening inequalities and infrastructure gaps. The COVID-19 pandemic led to a reversal in SDG progress on many goals and indicators.


However, despite these setbacks, cities and urban areas remain central to the sustainable development trajectory. Cities are where a new social contract can emerge to accelerate climate action, ensure peace and health for all. Cities and communities have demonstrated solutions and are accelerators for the implementation of the SDGs.

7 March 2022: Campaign Launch - TCWNN NA!

Women Forging The City We Need

Cities have a key role to play in promoting women’s equality and gender equity and empowering women and girls to be active members in all aspects of society.


Cities for women are cities for all

When women and girls are given equal opportunities to succeed, they can be powerful agents of change. A paradigm shift is needed from a male-centric urban development model to a gender-inclusive one for safe, inclusive, resilient and sustainable cities. #SDG11
