Your town or region is localizing the SDGs? Explain how by responding to our survey!

9 April 2018

Many local and regional governments are actively involved in the localisation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Others are still developing how they can get engaged, or wonder why they should get engaged. At the same, time the European Union and the United Nations are increasingly paying attention to what happens at the level of local and regional governments.

To showcase what is already happening and to better design proposals to the EU institutions about the support Europe’s towns and regions need to work with the SDG framework, CEMR and PLATFORMA encourage you to respond to this online survey: questionnaire (English only).

Please do so before 30 April 2018. The survey has around 40 questions and takes 45 to 60 minutes to reply to.

The questions refer to issues such as awareness raising, implementation and monitoring at the subnational level. It aims to capture the views from associations of local and regional governments but also of subnational governments themselves.

Also those local and regional government (associations) that are not working with the SDGs at this moment are encouraged to reply to the survey. This is particularly relevant in view of the proposals for future support CEMR can request to the EU and/or member states.

The survey has been designed in close coordination with the United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) secretariat. The results will be used by UCLG to inform the report to the United-States High Level Political Forum and the GOLD V report. There is no need for European associations to reply to the UCLG survey separately.

For any enquiries about the survey in specific or the localization of the SDGs in general, please do not hesitate to contact marlene.simeon@ccre-cemr.org or wouter.boesman@ccre-cemr.org.
