Learning Collaborative: Learning from experience and applied research is a key element of citiesRISE. This foundational component drives progress across research and evidence, shared learning and indicators, and advocacy and mobilization.

In order to achieve better data collection and knowledge exchange, citiesRISE is developing a hybrid approach that will include harmonized indicators across all sites. We anticipate these common core indicators to closely integrate within the internationally agreed-upon indicators of the SDGs. Alongside these indicators, customization to each particular city will support the progress of initiatives and cross-sectoral partnerships at the local level.
