Reply to: The localization of the Sustainable Development Goals: Implementing the SDGs in Colombia, Indonesia, and Kenya
This is an inspiring story. However, the lack of adequate capacity in most cities in the global south - where rapid urbanization is expected to occur - needs to be address in order to successfully implement the SDGs.
The New Urban Agenda recognizes the role of the Youth as agents for its successful implementation. As such, we recommend international, national and subnational actors to encourage the participation of young people in localizing the SDGs. This will surely help to build the needed capacity that cities and local governments require to implement the SDGs.

We like to restart the Community Based Site and Service program in Indonesia. Anyone knows whether this is still viable and valid? Especially as the Private Developers are so active in the urban fringes . ... and so Gentrification problems.
We wonder how we can compete with the land speculation that is so rampant . How to control this? Policies to enable existing communities to join this Site and Service program thru Land COnsolidation mechanisms , etc. Mixing with rental and partial sales Or even start this as a national housing policy that will not stir political waves ( as the power structure are often Real Estate private Developers who might look at these scheme as a treat for their business? ).
