The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – Regional and Local Implementation

With the adoption of Agenda 2030 in 2015, the international community established a set of universal goals for global sustainable development for the first time. Leaders and decision-makers at all levels are urged to own the Agenda and participate in making it a reality. Since 2015, the sef: has therefore seen it as a priority to support methodologies, strategies and mechanisms which contribute to the Agenda’s local and regional implementation.
