Early views of ASEAN's "Frontrunners cities" on the SDGs and Local Data Management

Concept notes and papers

This policy report analyses how “frontrunner” cities in Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries are localizing the SDGs. The report notes that, while national governments are incorporating the SDGs into their development plans, the SDGs must be implemented “on the ground, where sub-national governments are the key drivers,” requiring multiple levels of government to work together. In researching for the report, IGES surveyed government stakeholders that participated in the ASEAN Environmentally Sustainable Cities (ESC) Model Cities Programme, regarding local expectations and priorities around SDG implementation. The findings emphasize local data management, as reflected in the report’s title, ‘Early Views of ASEAN’s ‘Frontrunner Cities’ on the SDGs and Local Data Management.’
