UCLG report National and Sub-National Governments on the Way Towards the Localisation of the SDGs

The report, a contribution of UCLG to the Global Taskforce, will be presented today at the High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in New York.

On 11 July, Mayor of Ultrecht and President of VNG, Jan Van Zanen presented a report to the HLPF entitled “National and sub-national governments on the way towards localization”.

The report, a contribution of UCLG to Global Taskforce, provides evidence of the current and potential role of local and regional governments in the implementation and monitoring of the SDGs. It is based on first-hand information collected by UCLG from local government associations in over 30 countries, complemented by an analysis of the 63 official National Voluntary Reviews (NVRs) and ‘Main Messages’ presented by national governments.
