Purpose and goal

The overall aim of the project is to analyse how a system-based approach to implementing Agenda 2030 can contribute to a strategic enhancement and increased effectiveness for the development of sustainable and smart cities. The objective of the project has been met both analytically and communicatively. The results of the projects have been discussed and communicated with a large number of researchers and policy actors and received very positive feedback.

Expected effects and result

An analytical framework that creates the basis for the discussion of how a system innovation-driven Agenda 2030 can contribute to strategic lift and increased effectiveness for the development of smart and sustainable cities. Five concrete suggestions on future work with smart and sustainable cities, within the framework of Agenda 2030. The results of the project, i.e. both the analytical framework and policy messages about system innovation and Agenda 2030 can/will be further developed and communicated as an inspiration for future work.

Planned approach and implementation

The project will be implemented through a combined process, consisting of information collection and analysis in two focus areas: Policy initiatives related to system innovation for Agenda 2030. Ongoing work and development needs for a system innovation driven Agenda 2030 from a municipality perspective and by Vinnova. The analysis work has been carried out with Green Cities (Gröna Städer) as a platform and in close collaboration with Green Cities’ Sustainability Commission. The results from the analytical work were presented at a seminar in the Swedish Riksdag.
