New York City
Insights of the Report
New York City is located in the north-east part of USA and is the location of the United Nations Headquarters. NYC published its blueprint called “One New York: The Plan for a Strong and Just City (OneNYC)” for inclusive growth and climate action in 2015.
Originally released in 2007 under the name “PlaNYC,” successor of this plan “One New York: The Plan for a Strong and Just City (OneNYC)” is an effort to address New York City’s long-term challenges. Under Local Law 84 (2013), a long-term plan considering population projections, housing, air quality, coastal protections, and other sustainability and resiliency factors is required every four years on Earth Day.
The present report shows how localities across the country can implement the SDGs and the progress made by the city government in four visions.
This report was released in July 2018 and presented as the one of first VLRs at the UNHQ.
