Insights of the Report
Sultanbeyli presented its first Voluntary Local Review in 2021, which was conducted with support from United Cities and Local Governments Middle East and West Asia (UCLG MEWA) and UCLG World Organisation. The VLR report presents a detailed picture of the process followed to conduct the district’s VLR in order to inspire other cities in the region to conduct their own local review. The VLR report presents a comprehensive review of all 17 SDGs, including current baseline, the results of the local evaluation survey, and localised targets and indicators. More importantly, most of the reviewed SDGs include a section on leaving no one behind that explains the actions taken to extend sustainable development to all segments of society.

Its strategic location fostered its development since ancient times, with Aydos Castle being located in the district. The district’s rapid population growth is due to immigration from other parts of Turkey, and since 2020, it has received a large number of Syrian Refugees. Sultanbeyli is one of Istanbul’s working-class suburbs.
