The success of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development hinges on effective collaboration between all relevant actors. Knowledge, resources, skills and partnerships will need to be mobilized on an unprecedented scale to implement all of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Local2030: Localizing the SDGs is a network and platform that supports the on-the-ground delivery of the SDGs, with a focus on those furthest behind. It is a convergence point between local and regional governments and their associations, national governments, businesses, community-based organizations and other local actors, and the United Nations system. Local2030 supports local leaders in collaboratively incubating and sharing solutions, unlocking bottlenecks and implementing strategies that advance the SDGs at the local level.
Via this online platform, Local2030 partners are sharing tools, experiences, new solutions and guides to support SDG localization. A core feature is the toolbox, which contains a range of concrete, practical and adaptable mechanisms and instruments that support the development, implementation, monitoring and review of locally-appropriate SDG actions.
With the aim of providing a one-stop-shop on SDG localization resources and tools for stakeholders, this platform combines prior work by Localizing the SDGs and Local2030. In the coming months, Local2030: Localizing the SDGs will progressively roll out new tools and resources to complement existing work reflected on this website.
