In July 2018, 38 countries are going to report to the UN on the progress they have made in achieving the SDGs. The CIB Working Group wishes to support the LGAs in these countries with two things:

1.  To reach out to the national government to get involved in the process of drafting this report

2.  To complete information that will be useful for UCLG to draft a report that will be presented to the UN on how local governments are involved in the process.


The countries that report to the UN in 2018 are: 

  • Africa (11): Benin, Cabo Verde, Egypt, Guinea, Mali, Namibia, Niger, Republic of Congo, Senegal, Sudan, Togo

  • Asia–Pacific (7): Australia, Bhutan, Kiribati, Laos, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Vietnam

  • Eurasia (1): Armenia

  • Europe (14): Albania, Andorra, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland

  • Latin America (6): Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay, Uruguay

  • MEWA (6): Bahrain, Lebanon, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, State of Palestine, United Arab Emirates

  • North America (3): Bahamas, Canada, Jamaica

Please contact us at uclg.cib@vng.nl if:

  1. You wish to support one of the LGAs in the countries listed above in the steps 1 and 2 mentioned above

  2. Your LGA is based in one of the countries mentioned above and if you wish to get some guidance

Together with the UCLG World Secretariat we will be developing a short training as well as questionnaires that will help in the process.
