Monitoring the global agenda in municipalities: the Mandala tool

Tools , Available in Español Français

The Mandala is a tool developed by the Brazilian National Confederation of Municipalities, which encourages the use of data and reflects local realities based on different indicators, in order to develop appropriate public policies in line with SDG localization. The process of introducing the Mandala process in Brazil began in 2016, with the formulation of the criteria and indicators required to create the different analysis groups. Once the indicators had been decided, the necessary data were collected, systematised and validated by the CNM team. The process, promoted within the framework of the ‘Localising the SDGs in Brazilian municipalities’ project in association with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), was publicised in a subsequent outreach campaign. Mandala is also one of the many tools that UCLG is using in its learning sessions and is of special interest for national associations.
