Connective Cities organised an international virtual dialogue event aimed to strengthen local implementation of the SDGs through local reviews and monitoring. The event was held in partnership with United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) and PLATFORMA and co-hosted by the City of Bonn, which is a front runner in municipal SDG strategies and reporting and published its first Voluntary Local Review (VLR) in October 2020.
Almost 60 participants from 19 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, North and Latin America were able to experience the benefits of working in a global learning community. Participants came from a broad variety of backgrounds, including municipalities, civil society, local government associations, international city networks, universities and United Nations agencies.
The dialogue event focused on three main thematic issues
During the sessions, participants had the opportunity to exchange on 15 good practice examples, discuss eight challenges related to the main topic and jointly develop pragmatic solutions for four sample cases: the National Association of Municipalities of Mozambique (ANAMM), Bonn (Germany), Lviv (Ukraine) and Manizales (Colombia). These solutions will be translated into projects and will be further developed in the next few months.
This report summarises the main results of the virtual dialogue event.
