A city that is not good for its citizens is not good for tourists. Tourism can advance urban infrastructure and accessibility, promote regeneration and preserve cultural and natural heritage, assets on which tourism depends. Investment in green infrastructure (more efficient transport, reduced air pollution) should result in smarter and greener cities for not only residents but also tourists. Article 3 of the UNWTO Global Code of Ethics for Tourism emphasizes that all tourism stakeholders should safeguard the natural environment while developing tourism, including in cities and communities, to ensure sound, continuous sustainable economic growth, for the sake of both present and future generations 

 There are seven targets within SDG 11 that are deemed to have a stronger and direct link for tourism to promake cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. These targets have been selected to base the potential project indicators.
