Developing meaningful indicators to measure local SDG progress
The second of Nordregio’s three Localising Agenda 2030 webinars will take place on 16 February 2022, 13:00 – 14:30 CET.
WATCH THE RECORDING OF THE WEBINAR!
Measuring the progress and impact of local Agenda 2030 efforts remains a challenge for many Nordic municipalities since indicators and data are not always available locally. Nevertheless, many municipalities have established meaningful, localised indicators that correspond with city strategies towards Agenda 2030. There is also growing momentum around Voluntary Local Reviews (VLRs), which we will learn more about in this knowledge-sharing webinar. We are excited to have experienced municipalities offering their best practices on developing and applying indicator sets. The challenges of developing comprehensive methodologies, working across departments, and coordinating with fellow Nordic municipalities to report on common targets is another area that will be addressed during the session.
Welcome to join the discussion and share your tools and learnings!
