In advance of the annual forum, Dr. Sheehan co-authored an article in Citiscope with colleagues from Paris and Morocco titled Why the World Needs a Metropolitan Compact: A New Vision for the Future of Sustainability.

A generation ago, the United Nations launched the Global Compact, an effort to connect sustainability with private-sector entrepreneurism. Today, it is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, involving more than 12,000 signatories from over 160 countries.

The creation of the Global Compact was a landmark event in that it signalled the international community’s recognition of the need for a broad-based, multi-stakeholder approach to sustainability. Using that idea, we are now calling for new global recognition of one of the most powerful trends shaping worldwide systems today: metropolitanization. We call this new vision the Metropolitan Compact.

Learn more about Dr. Sheehan’s grant-funded work  including a two-year long initiative the resulted in the publication of an 84 page technical report  on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

U.N. SDSN/SCI-UB | U.N. SDSN Sustainable Development Goals Final Report – Baltimore | Sustainable Development Solutions Network | Sustainable Cities Initiative Final Report – Baltimore | Spring 2017

A new 84 page report released by the University of Baltimore articulates how the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can be localized to support a more sustainable Baltimore. Mayor Catherine Pugh endorsed the initiative when she took office in December 2016. “As you will read in this report, the indicators reflect the range of work that is already being done in Baltimore, challenge us to push further, and connect us to a global effort,” said Mayor Pugh in the report’s foreword. “Every urban university has a special responsibility to support and advance the communities in which it resides,” said Kurt L. Schmoke, president of the University of Baltimore. “At UB, we are sharing our expertise in the growing field of sustainability, serving as a gathering place for information, trends and planning efforts. In time, this hard work will help to deliver a Baltimore that is more livable, equitable and, most importantly, a city that thrives in the 21st century.” A link to the full report, which includes ways to get involved and details about each of the Baltimore SDGs, is available on UB’s Sustainable Cities Initiative website.

Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan – Associate Professor of Public and International Affairs – worked on matters related to the implementation of sustainable development goals in Baltimore. His work and that of his colleagues is discussed in several articles featured at Citiscope and the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UNSDSN).

U.N. SDSN | Sustainable Cities Initiative: Taking Stock and Building on Existing Development Efforts

Baltimore was selected as a model city for the Sustainable Cities Initiative, a global effort to bring together academic institutions and key stakeholders to support the UN’s SDGs—a series of global aspirations and priorities designed to take on major sustainable development challenges.

The University of Baltimore, its College of Public Affairs and the Jacob France Institute in the Merrick School of Business served lead university partners in the effort to facilitate a process that articulated Baltimore’s strategies and goals in support of sustainable development and a framework for setting targets. Baltimore was selected as a model city for the new USA Sustainable Cities Initiative (USA-SCI). The project, facilitated by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), was funded by the Kresge Foundation via Columbia University, and brought together academic institutions and key stakeholders to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)—a series of global aspirations and priorities designed to take on major sustainable development challenges.

Jeffrey Sachs, special advisor to the UN Secretary General and director of SDSN, believes Baltimore is serving as a trailblazer in demonstrating how the SDGs can work for cities in the United States.

“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.
