(6th meeting) Vertical cooperation – Local authorities and national governments working together for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda - High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development 2016
13 Jul 2016 -  10th session - Discussion on “Vertical cooperation – Local authorities and national governments working together for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda”
Issues discussed in this session are essential for successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda. Translating national plans and intermediate targets into policy interventions, reflecting synergies and achieving the development results at the local level is vital. For the 2030 Agenda to become a reality, success will depend on effective local action. This will need the active role of local governments/authorities and communities at the grass-root level among others. The challenge is not how to localise the Agenda, but how to ‘glocalise’ the Agenda.
