Online Course "Localizing the Sustainable Development Goals: Tools for Local Transformation"
The world organization United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) and the Barcelona Provincial Council, through the Observatory for Decentralized Cooperation and UCLG Learning, are launching an online training under the name "Localizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Tools for Local Transformation".
This online course, with the collaboration of UN-Habitat and UNDP, responds to local and regional governments' need around the world to address the challenge of adopting the 2030 Agenda and implementing the SDGs in their territories.
In this sense, the course aims to train and provide tools for local and regional governments (LRGs) and their associations to implement and adapt the SDGs at the local level, a process known as "localizing the SDGs".
In order to enable the participation of as many countries as possible, the course will be available in three languages: Spanish, English and French. This entails a greater diversity of visions and experiences that can only enrich the training.
This training is based on the road map developed by the Global Taskforce of Local and Regional Governments, UNDP-Art and UN-Habitat, to assist local and regional governments in formulating national policies to create an enabling environment for action at the national, local and regional levels.
