ONE FOR ALL
"The time for half-measures, incrementalism and siloed actors is over. There are 10,000 cities with 50,000 people in the world. We are committed together with KPMG and our global partners to reach all 10,000 cities by 2030,
scaling 10X from the first 1,000 in the next year.
- Kari Aina Eik, Secretary General, United Cities
Chair, U4SSC KPI Implementation Program
To meet the magnitude of this goal, United Cities has partnered with SDG Impact Fund to create United Cities Funds as a global catalytic capital facility dedicated to enabling all
10,000 cities to transition to NetZero prosperity across the
17 UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030."

There is no question - change cities, and you change the world.
The bold and necessary target of 10,000 cities by 2030 brings the realization of SDG 11 into reach, and holds everything that SDG 17, Partnerships for the Goals,
