Local and Regional Governments' Report to the 2022 High-Level Political Forum

This is a reminder about answering the survey on the localization of the SDGs.
As in previous years, the next report of the World secretariat on the role of local and regional governments in the localization of the SDGs will be presented to the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) of the United Nations in July 2022. We would like to know about the experiences on localizing the 2030 Agenda of as many local governments and associations as possible through our new survey.

Consider supporting: Please fill in the Survey!
This year, the HLPF will address the theme “Building back better from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) while advancing the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. The report will particularly focus on highlighting local and regional governments’ contribution to quality education (SDG 4), gender equality (SDG 5), life below water (SDG 14), life on land (SDG 15), and partnerships for the Goals (SDG 17).
The secretariat needs the support of local and regional governments and their national associations, from all the countries and particularly from the 45 countries that have committed to submit a Voluntary National Review to the 2022 HLPF. The complete list of countries by region is available below.
You can access this link to complete the survey online before April 15th. Through this link you will also find a downloadable file that you can use as a guide. In case of technical issues, kindly get in touch with the UCLG World secretariat, as they will provide an off-line version of the survey. Do not hesitate to write:
For European members only: European local government associations and local and regional governments have already received a similar survey sent by the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) and PLATFORMA in February. If you did not receive it, you can also access it through the following link. Please make sure you only answer the survey once.
