Source:, 2018-02-09

In an effort to support cities to achieve a greener future, a new Urban Sustainability Framework (USF), was launched by the World Bank and the Global Environment Facility (GEF), serving as a guide for cities seeking to enhance their sustainability.

Launched at the ninth session of the World Urban Forum (WUF9)*, which took place February 7 - 13, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, this guide supports cities along the sustainability pathway, from creating a vision to identifying financial resources to implement their plans.

The Framework is a collaboration among cities, organizations, and experts who have contributed to the development of the Framework.
