Posted by UNDP , UNDP November 6 2017 0 Local experience

The Ministry of Transparency, Social Responsibility, Participation and Cooperation has closed the First Meeting of Regional Governments on Sustainable Development with the presentation of the declaration 'A Regional Agenda for Action for the Sustainable Development Goals', a document signed by the eleven governments regional participants in this first meeting.

Through this declaration, they commit themselves to the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations to continue advancing in the global debate on sustainable development. They also highlight that the achievement of the SDGs depends on the capacity of local and regional governments to promote territorial development, as well as launching an Alliance that includes both the local government and the private sector, civil society, universities and other actors linked to sustainable development. In this regard, they underline the importance of coordination to build an action plan with the SDGs at the regional level.

In addition, they emphasize that "the location of the SDGs constitutes the most important challenge we face from the implementation of the 2030 Agenda". A challenge that requires partnerships to transform the 2030 Agenda into policies and actions at both the regional and local levels.

Organized by the Ministry of Transparency, this first meeting was held in Valencia with the aim of exchanging experiences by European and non-European regional governments for the achievement and location of the Sustainable Development Goals at the regional level.
