Sustainable Development through Local Action

Concept notes and papers

This study aims to provide an in-depth insight into the involvement of Local Government Associations (LGAs) in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with focus on national reporting efforts to the UN ECOSOC High Level Political Forum (HLPF) as set out through the Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) submitted by national governments. The study identifies problems LGAs experience when localizing SDGs and engaging in the national VNR reporting process. It shows what LGAs can learn from each other, and identifies a number of policy recommendations, notably in respect of engaging with the forthcoming 2019 VNR and its follow-up.
