What is the local SDG?
The mobilisation of municipal decision-makers and technicians, local agents and citizens in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals.
The 2030 Agenda proposed by the United Nations in 2015 was adopted and adapted by the localSDG Platform, so that its goals are suitable to the reality of Portuguese municipalities. 119 out of the 169 targets were considered, of which 25 were adapted and are structured according to Dimensions, Objectives, Themes, Targets and Indicators.
The ODSlocal Platform, based on a comprehensive and intense mobilization of municipal decision-makers and technicians, local agents and citizens in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) proposed by the United Nations in the 2030 Agenda, aims to create a national movement for local SDGs that the Municipalities want to join, mobilizing the remaining public and civil society actors in an exponential and contagious way.
Involving as partners CNADS (National Council for the Environment and Sustainable Development), OBSERVA (Institute of Social Sciences, University of Lisbon), MARE (New University of Lisbon) and 2adapt, this initiative is based on a dynamic online portal that allows the visualization and monitoring of the contributions and progress of each municipality in relation to the SDGs, with a strict quality control of the information and an intense involvement of actors and respective empowerment, along with a strong investment in a communication strategy.
The ODSlocal Platform aims at monitoring the progress of Municipalities in relation to various SDG targets through progress indicators based on information from national national databases and the municipalities themselves. It also aims to map the innovative and sustainable practices that both municipalities and civil society and companies are implementing, and measure their impact.
