Maputo hosts the Training of Trainers for the localization of the SDG

On the last November 18th and 19th, the National Association of Municipalities of Mozambique (ANAMM) has promoted, with the support of the UCLG Learning, UCLG-GOLD, the UNDP-Art and GIZ, their first national training of trainers for the localization of the SDG, based on the Modules 1 (awareness raising about the SDG), 2 (local planning of the SDG) and 3 (reporting the SDG), produced with the UN-Habitat, UNDP-Art, the Global Taskforce of Local and Regional Governments and the Provincial Government of Barcelona.

The training had the presence of 53 mayors and representatives of Mozambiquean local governments, and also counted with the experiences of Angola, Brazil and the National Association of Municipalities of Cabo Verde.

This has closed a series of this year's Training of Trainers (ToTs) in Africa, supported by the UCLG-Africa, that has begun in Accra (for the English speaking african local governments), passed through Ouagadougou (French speaking local governments) and has ended the year with the Portuguese speaking african local governments ToT.    

Now with all the 3 Modules already available in English, French and Spanish, and the Module 1 in Portuguese (at the UCLG Learning website), the trainers can multiply their own local trainings, adapting the contents and exercises to their own locality characteristics.

From this first training on, that was opened and closed by the Mayor of Maputo, Eneas Comiche, ANAMM has assumed the compromise to continue the local trainings about the localization of the SDGs for other cities in Mozambique. The delegation of Angola had also commited to multiply the module's contents and exercises to the cities and civil society of Angola next year.  

From the discussions about the participation of local governments of Mozambique on the 2020 Voluntary National Reviews about the SDG with the local UNDP, ANAMM has committed to participate, with the support of UCLG, to report the evolution of the SDG on the Mozambiquean local governments for the next year's report to UN.
