DDLG Thematic Unit
Dear members and partners,
you very much for your cooperation in the process of reporting to the
UN High Level Political Forum on SDGs, for the first time, from the perspective
of local and regional governments.
30 national associations of local and regional government have contributed to
this report and a total of 63 Voluntary national Review have been analyzed to
assess the involvement of local and regional governments in the process of
localizing the SDGs. With your support, UCLG has facilitated the report for the
Global taskforce on the National and sub-national governments on the
way towards the localization of the SDGs. It’s our privilege to share it
with you. It showcases your crucial role in mobilizing LRGs in addition to
raising awareness of national governments in doing so.
> In 37 countries, local and regional government are mentioned as having taken part in the consultation process.
> In 27 countries, local and regional government are included in high-level coordination or consultation mechanism to ensure the implementation and follow-up.
report raises challenging issues on the extent to which sub-national
governments are granted with the means of implementing to
localize the SDGs.
>In 19 countries, decentralization or devolution is singled out as crucial in the implementation of SDGs and 11 more referred to the need to strengthen local governance.
>In 25 countries, concrete progress in aligning the SDGs in local plans and actions have been implemented, even though top-down approaches are still
dominant in some countries.
the following two weeks, the report will be presented in several occasion by
the delegation of Local and regional governments participating at the HLPF in New
York. We invite you and your network to actively continue advocating for LRG
seat in the “reporting table”.
will communicate through #local4action and #HLPF2017.
