On Wednesday 28 September, the City of Nedlands signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the UN, becoming a signatory to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


The UN SDGs provide a universal sustainability framework to guide sustainable development outcomes at all levels: global, national, local and regional.

SDG targets and indicators help guide the development and/or enhance local governments’ existing localised sustainability targets and indicators through programs such as waste management. These targets and indicators assist with bringing the local government in-line with national and global collaborative efforts.


Each sustainability goal has associated targets and indicators to help guide implementation of strategies and practices which achieve sustainable development outcomes. In total, there are: 17 goals, 169 targets and 232 indicators.


Mayor Fiona Argyle said, “Adopting these goals will help continue to provide a sustainable future for the Nedlands community.”


“Sustainability plays a major role in local governments’ strategic planning which ultimately influences the services and projects delivered to communities now and into the future.”
