The fourth Local and Regional Governments Forum (LRGF), a Special Event of the UN High Level Political Forum (HLPF) illustrated the importance of localizing action towards the achievement of the SDGs in review in 2021 and how partnerships amongst spheres of government and stakeholders are crucial in this regard.
The fourth Local and Regional Governments Forum aimed to bring together local, regional, and national governments to discuss how decentralized cooperation among local and regional governments and their associations and networks, national authorities and the international community can contribute to the achievement of the SDGs.
This HLPF Special Event addressed the main theme of 2021 by bringing concrete recommendations to support a sustainable and resilient recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, building an inclusive and effective path for the achievement of the 2030 Agenda. It was also an opportunity for local and regional governments and other stakeholders to announce SDG Acceleration Actions in support of the Decade of Action.
The Local and Regional Governments Forum on the 2030 Agenda was co-organized by UNDESA, the Global Taskforce of Local and Regional Governments (GTF), UN-Habitat, UNDP and Local 2030.
