The National Confederation of Municipalities (CNM) has launched three publications last August in order to promote knowledge on interesting themes for local authorities and networks, especially the ones (active) in Latin America and the Caribbean region. Please find a short overview below:
In Brazil, (newly elected) Mayors are receiving extensive support from the National Confederation of Municipalities of Brazil (CNM) with regard to the localization process of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). After the organization of seminars on Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development in fall 2016, Mayors have now also received a guide that presents the importance of the SDGs and outlines its relation to the municipal competences.
Last August, the Brazilian National Confederation of Municipalities (CNM) and UNDP Art Initiative launched a project aimed at capacitating Brazilian local governments from all parts of the country to act as true catalysts of change in the implementation process of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
