What is SDG Localization?
SDG localization is the process of transforming the SDGs into reality at the local level, in coherence with the national frameworks and in line with communities’ priorities. Localization means collaboration among all stakeholders and coordination across sectors and spheres of governance. It is a two-way process where the local meets the national and the global, and vice-versa.
Why SDG Localization?
Local and regional governments are the tier of governance closest to local communities, able to better understand their needs and priorities, and to better address policymaking. Local and regional governments (LRGs) lead territories and local communities’ development paths; they deliver essential public services and act as catalysts for transformative change.
