Sustainable urban infrastructure expands on the concept of urban infrastructure by adding the sustainability element with the expectation of improved and more resilient urban development. In the construction and physical and organizational structures that enable cities to function, sustainability also aims to meet the needs of the present generation without compromising the capabilities of the future generations.

SDG 9, of the international sustainable development goals set by the United Nations General Assembly, deals with infrastructure, however, infrastructure is a building block for the rest of the SDGS. Therefore, the achievement of sustainable infrastructure is of significant concern in multiple areas of society.
