Towards Urban Sustainability in Latin America


Lessons from research in Colombia and Latin America, with implications for global policy and practice.

With the right development approaches Latin American cities can become hubs that relieve poverty and drive regional growth.

One of our four regional synthesis reports, this paper presents key findings from PEAK research in Colombia covering five broad categories - economic growth, urban sustainability, inclusiveness, housing and localising the SDGs. It offers insights to help government and non-state actors at national and international levels shape stable, equitable cities that deliver decent lives for all residents.

PEAK Urban identifies the proactive policies and interventions that can produce efficient, productive, inclusive and sustainable urban future.
