The role of Associations of LRGs in accomplishing the 2030 Agenda

The SDGs have been established at the global level to help create a more sustainable planet and a free, prosperous and peaceful society. Monitoring these objectives at the sub-national level is of paramount importance.

In this course, we will examine the main tasks that Associations of Local and Regional Governments must carry out to connect LRGs to the pursuit of the Global Agenda.

We will see, in greater depth, what are Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs), Voluntary Local Reviews (VLRs), and also Voluntary Subnational Reviews (VSRs) through articles, interactive infographics and exercises.

Are you ready? Let's go!
