How can the SDGs be localized? What is the specific role and potential of regional governments? With the aim of sharing knowledge and stimulating constructive discussion, the debate will review what European Regions and their counterparts from around the globe are doing in this regard, paying particular attention to institutional frameworks, specific mechanisms and public policies to support the achievement of the Global Goals from a regional perspective. This session will also build on the preliminary results of the study promoted by UNDP and ACCD on the role of regional governments in localizing the SDGs.
