Coordinated by UNDESA and UNDP the electronic discussion aimes to engage stakeholders groups, experts, practitioners and policy makers from regions across the globe in a dialogue focused on the aspects of the 2018 ECOSOC theme “From global to local: supporting sustainable and resilient societies in urban and rural communities”
The e-Discussion will be open from March 26 to April 8 and it will serve to bring regional and local governments voices forward and feed the report of the Secretary General to the ECOSOC.
To help guide it, two questions have been proposed:
- What are the current and emerging challenges to building sustainable and resilient societies and what actions can be taken, especially at the local level to address these challenges?
- How are national and subnational institutions translating the sustainable development goals into concrete actions? What institutional frameworks for sustainable development are required, and how can they be built?
