USA Sustainable Cities Initiative Launches in Baltimore, with UB Named as Lead University Partner

Part of a Global Effort to Achieve Newly Adopted Sustainable Development Goals

The University of Baltimore, its College of Public Affairs and the Jacob France Institute in its Merrick School of Business will serve as lead university partner to facilitate a process that articulates Baltimore’s strategies and goals in support of sustainable development.

Baltimore has been selected as a model city for the new USA Sustainable Cities Initiative (USA-SCI). This project, led by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and Climate Nexus, brings together academic institutions and key stakeholders to support the UN’s newly adopted Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)—a series of global aspirations and priorities designed to take on major sustainable development challenges. Additional details below.

Jeffrey Sachs, special advisor to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and director of SDSN, believes Baltimore can serve as a trailblazer in demonstrating how the SDGs could work for cities in the United States, and the importance of addressing social issues, such as race and class and poverty alleviation, along with economic ones.

“I am thrilled to be working with Baltimore and its citizens to build on past successes, to find new, innovative solutions to persistent development challenges, and to support Baltimore to become a leader in the world of sustainable development,” Sachs said.

Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan is the Director of the graduate programs in Negotiations & Conflict Management and Global Affairs & Human Security in the College of Public Affairs at the University of Baltimore.

On November 5, 2015, Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan, Associate Professor of Public and International Affairs, spoke in the U.S. Congress alongside prominent U.S. officials including the first Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Middle East and North Africa Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), House Foreign Affairs Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA), Foreign Affairs Ranking Member Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX), Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), Former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Amb. PJ Crowley, Former White House National Security Council Senior Staffer and Professor Emeritus at the University of Michigan Raymond Tanter, Former Executive Director of Freedom House Bruce McColm.

The briefing, held in the U.S. House of Representatives Rayburn Office Building, came just one week after a terrorist attack on Iranian dissidents killed 24 individuals and wounded dozens more. The briefing featured assessments of U.S. Iran policy in the the context of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran and bipartisan condemnations of recent violence directed at the Iranian opposition detained in Iraq. The missile attack received widespread coverage in U.S. media including articles in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, the Washington Times, The Associated Press, and FOXnews.com.

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R-AZ) issued a strong statement describing the attack as an “outrage” which “represents a betrayal of the civilians the United States committed to protect.”

In his remarks Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan issued an assessment of the realities facing U.S. policymakers:

“The world’s shift to a pro-engagement policy with Tehran facilitated the decision to crack down on those individuals promoting freedom, democracy, human rights, gender equality, the rule of law, and a non-nuclear Iran.

The attack is just the most recent example of the Iranian regime’s continued state sponsorship of terrorism, in spite of the nuclear agreement.

In the week’s ahead, Congress must build the bipartisanship necessary to demand accountability and action from the Iraqi Government. Congress must also independently use its leverage to only allow funds, arms, and training to the Iraqi Government after it has ensured – in a transparent way and credible way – the protection of the residents of Camp Liberty. In the wake of the Joint Comprehensive plan of Action with Iran, Congress must act more resolutely than ever before.”

Dr. Sheehan is the Director of the graduate programs in Negotiations & Conflict Management and Global Affairs & Human Security in the College of Public Affairs at the University of Baltimore.
