This document provides guidance on how to implement and maintain a management system for sustainable development based on ISO 37101 principles, specifically in the context of cities, but applicable to other forms of settlement. This document: — provides guidance for practical implementation of a management system for sustainable development in cities and other settlements, based on ISO 37101; — establishes a methodological framework for the systematic evaluation of the sustainable development schemes and achievements in the city or other settlements, based on the cross-analysis of the six purposes of sustainability and the 12 areas of action of ISO 37101; — illustrates how other International Standards can be used to support successful implementation of ISO 37101, including, in particular, ISO 37120 (which recommends a suite of city indicators mapped against the six purposes of ISO 37101) and ISO 37106 (which provides practical guidance on how to implement joined-up delivery and innovation across organizational boundaries within the city or settlement). This document is intended for organizing bodies, decision-makers, executive officers and managers in cities ? usually, in the first instance, the relevant local governments. This document is intended to help cities become more sustainable, through the implementation at city level of strategies, programmes, projects, plans and services referred to in this document as schemes (see Note 1 and 3.7). It also provides a platform to help demonstrate and communicate their commitment, progress and achievements. NOTE 1 In this document, the term "scheme" is used to cover strategies, programs, projects, plans and services. NOTE 2 The guidance can be used for city-wide strategies, but also, potentially, for some sector-specific schemes at a city level. This document is applicable to a range of types and scales of communities: cities, towns, villages or other kinds of human settlements with defined boundaries. NOTE 3 In this document, the term "city" refers to cities, towns, villages or other kind of human settlements with defined territorial boundaries and administrative authority. The approach is in line with other deliverables developed by ISO/TC 268 and ISO/TC 268/SC 1 that could be identified as the ISO 371XX family. This document can be used in whole or in part to establish or systematically improve a community-based sustainable development management system. It provides additional operational instructions and examples regarding ways of meeting the 37101 requirements.

ISO 37101:2016 establishes requirements for a management system for sustainable development in communities, including cities, using a holistic approach, with a view to ensuring consistency with the sustainable development policy of communities. The intended outcomes of a management system for sustainable development in communities include: · managing sustainability and fostering smartness and resilience in communities, while taking into account the territorial boundaries to which it applies; · improving the contribution of communities to sustainable development outcomes; · assessing the performance of communities in progressing towards sustainable development outcomes and the level of smartness and of resilience that they have achieved; · fulfilling compliance obligations. ISO 37101:2016 is intended to help communities become more resilient, smart and sustainable, through the implementation of strategies, programmes, projects, plans and services, and demonstrate and communicate their achievements. ISO 37101:2016 is intended to be implemented by an organization designated by a community to establish the organizational framework and to provide the resources necessary to support the management of environmental, economic and social performance outcomes. A community that chooses to establish the organizational framework by itself is considered to constitute an organization as defined in ISO 37101:2016. ISO 37101:2016 is applicable to communities of all sizes, structures and types, in developed or developing countries, at local, regional or national levels, and in defined urban or rural areas, at their respective level of responsibility. ISO 37101:2016 can be used in whole or in part to improve the management of sustainable development in communities. Claims of conformity to ISO 37101:2016, however, are not acceptable unless all its requirements are incorporated into an organization's management system for sustainable development in communities and fulfilled without exclusion.
