This book entitled THE CHALLENGE OF URBAN SUSTAINABILITY IN YAOUNDE: STAKES, ACTORS AND STRATEGIES seeks to show that the misuse of public infrastructures notably roads, drains and electric poles infrastructures by Yaounde city dwellers constitute an obstacle to the transformation of Yaounde into a sustainable city by 2030. The study is based on the main hypothesis that public infrastructures misuse hinders the achievement of SDG 11 by compromising its finality that is the sustainable welfare of citizens. It uses the qualitative method of research by collecting data gotten from documentary sources, field observations and interviews. The data collected enable the reader to understand three things: the importance of infrastructures for the achievement of SDG11, the importance of sustainable citizenship for the preservation of these infrastructures and the need to reinforce Cameroons educational system by integrating Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) which is geared towards sustainability. The results then propose the policy of Education for Sustainable Development to be implemented in Cameroon in order to transform Yaounde into a sustainable city by 2030.
