The objectives embedded in the global policy framework for urban sustainability cover a large spectrum of interconnected social, economic, environmental and spatial policies and interventions. This complexity requires clear explanation and demonstration of the diversity of actions and practicalities that the implementation of the New Urban Agenda entails. The capacities of different stakeholders engaged in the implementation of the New Urban Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals vary tremendously from one place to another.
