Regions4 promotes and supports the implementation of the 2030 Agenda at the level of regional governments, providing expertise, best practices and capacity-building opportunities that can be replicated and showcased.

The activities include the production of quality content about the experiences on this agenda implementation and reports on the inclusion of regional governments in national reviews. The organisation of webinars and information gathering serve as the basis for establishing projects and activities that support the capacities of subnational governments to implement and monitor the progress of the SDGs.

Activities and outcomes

The localisation of the SDGs is a threefold initiative. One set of actions is centred around informing and engaging regions about the importance of the 2030 Agenda. Another is supporting their implementation efforts and providing channels for continuous peer learning and review. Finally, the last course of action is showcasing good practices and strengthening regions’ voices at the global level.

Ultimately, the initiative has three main goals. It aims to share the contribution of regional governments to the SDGs and understand the internal process undertaken by each region to incorporate and transform the global agenda into their own, reflecting their specific circumstances. Also, it envisages to further develop participatory models of governance and accountability mechanisms, and to craft multi-stakeholder partnerships. Lastly, it seeks to bridge different levels of government for more coherent and coordinated actions, fostering greater ambition and complementing efforts.
