ISO 37120:2014 Sustainable development of communities is a new landmark standard outlining key measurements for evaluating a city’s service delivery and quality of life. Its use will help Local Government managers, politicians, researchers, business leaders, planners, designers and other professionals
to focus on key issues, and put in place policies for more liveable, tolerant, sustainable, resilient, economically attractive and prosperous Local Governments.
ISO 37120:2014 Sustainable development of communities – Indicators for city services and quality of life was launched on 15 May 2014 during a global Local Governments summit, in order to help cities to assess their performance and measure progress overtime, improving quality of life and sustainability. Currently, 53 % of the world’s population resides in Local Governments, a figure that is expected to rise to 70 % by 2050.
Is it for me?
ISO 37120:2014 can be used by any Local Government wishing to measure its performance in a comparable and verifiable manner, irrespective of size and location or level of development.
