A Review of Integrated Urban Planning Tools for Greenhouse Gas Mitigation (2020)

Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) over the next 30 years will critically depend upon urban land use and infrastructure development actions taken across multiple sectors (buildings, energy, transportation, water-sanitation, and waste) in global cities.

Members of the Sustainable Healthy Cities network — Anu Ramaswami, Andrew Fang, and Samuel Tabory — were lead authors on this report from The World Bank.
