Concept notes and papers
The seminar “Integrated territorial partnerships and the SDGs: How to leave no one behind” (14th June, venue: Basque Government Delegation to the European Union- Brussels) examined how local and regional governments, through territorial partnerships and decentralised cooperation initiatives, contribute to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); and hence to the economic development, social cohesion and environmental protection of their communities. Under the joint coordination of the Basque Government, the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions of Europe (CPMR), PLATFORMA, and ART Initiative-Hub for Territorial Partnerships of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the seminar gathered representatives of regional and local governments from across the globe and their associations, as well as high level officials from the European Commission, the UNDP and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). The objective of the seminar was to exchange among a wide range of stakeholders the practical aspects of how Territorial Partnerships and Decentralised Cooperation contribute to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); and hence to sustainable human development at the regional and local levels.
