The Network of Regional Governments for Sustainable Development (nrg4SD) is a global network that solely represents regional governments (states, regions and provinces) in the fields of climate change, biodiversity and sustainable development, particularly following the mandates of the UN conventions and agendas. nrg4SD promotes cooperation among regional governments from across the world to ensure the engagement and implementation of these agendas, fostering the exchange of information, knowhow and best practices.
In the field of Sustainable Development, nrg4SD acts as the Organizing Partner of the Local Authorities Major Group, and contributed to the whole intergovernmental process, bringing the perspective of subnational government. Since the approval of the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development, nrg4SD works with members to support the subnational implementation of the SDGs, and to encourage their engagement in national processes of implementation, follow-up and review.
nrg4SD was established in 2002, at the World Summit in Johannesburg, and today has over 50 members from 30 countries on 4 continents.
