The Guidelines are a practical reference document on approaches to evidence-based policy-making for policy-makers involved in development and implementation of policies on housing and urban development at all levels of governance. The Guidelines can be used at all stages of the policy making – from agenda setting and policy formulation to the implementation/review and evaluation. Application of these Guidelines is an important resource for the analysis of the approaches to review the progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), especially SDG 11.

Recommendations

Developing evidence-based policies that support the measurement of progress on the SDGs now and in the future depend upon three key processes: (i) developing a robust set of national monitoring indicators, (ii) strengthening statistical capacity, and (iii) capitalizing on the data revolution, harnessing new technologies and new sources of data. Achieving better quality, high frequency data in support of the SDGs will require a step- change in the way governments and NSOs do business. On this basis, the following recommendations for improving evidence-based policymaking for sustainable urban development with a focus on housing are put forward.
