    Abstract As urban centres pursue localisation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), rapidly growing cities in low-and middle-income countries (LMICs), many of which are located in the Asia-Pacific region, are experiencing competing demands for limited resources. The protection and enhancement of Urban Green Spaces (UGS) is a practical, lowcost opportunity to produce multiple benefits across the SDGs, ranging from improving the health and wellbeing of city dwellers and reducing inequalities to protecting local flora and fauna and attracting economic investments for future generations. In developing a city-wide strategy for UGS that aligns with the New Urban Agenda, it is important to consider the coordination of efforts from multiple sectors through participatory decision-making mechanisms that engage the civil society and address the needs of the most vulnerable population groups regarding mobility (such as children, elderly, women and people with disabilities) to ensure no one is left behind.
