In the past months, UCLG has been working to communicate the 2030 Agenda to its members and to support them in “localizing” the SDGs in their communities. Based on the outcomes of the narrative and dialogue developed in 2014 on “Localizing the Post 2015 development Agenda”, the Global Taskforce of Local and Regional Governments, UNDP and UN Habitat decided to continue to join forces for the development of a toolbox for the “localizing” the SDGs.
In the run up to the World Humanitarian Summit which will take place on 26-27 May 2016, an extensive round of consultations is taking place both in regional and global settings to set the agenda for the two-day summit. The most recent Global Urban Consultation was held on the 22-23 June in Spain. It was co-hosted by UCLG and UN Habitat with support from Global Communities, USAID and the Department for International Development/International Rescue Committee (DFID/ICR).
