SDG Learning Modules
UCLG, together with UN-Habitat, UNDP, and Diputació de Barcelona, with the support of European Comission, has developed Training of Trainers (ToT) modules to multiply the knowledge about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) localizing process in all its dimensions.
Module 1, available here, provides an introduction to the SDGs. It is based on participatory methodologies and open learning, and enables to the future association and network facilitators to run workshops for the SDGs awareness raising local strategies. It is primarily targeted at members of local and regional governments, as well as local government associations and partners.
Module 2, available here, focuses on the alignment of public policies with the SDGs. It provides a guide from planning to the implementation of local public policies. The module works on strategic, integral and non-sectoral plans that aim to be as broad as possible. It is produced to be facilitated to local and regional government members and associations (LRGs and LRGAs), but due to its inclusive approach, it is also suitable for representatives of the private sector, civil society and academia.
Module 3, available here, provides guidance to the SDGs localizing process reporting. It gives examples, exercises and tools to the Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) and Voluntary Local Reviews (VLRs), to be presented at the United Nations High Level Political Forum (HLPF) on the coming years. To this purpose, the module is aimed to LRGs, LRGAs and other networks, for the facilitation on the SDGs monitoring and reporting processes, both at national and international levels.
Finally the Module 4, to be developed during the year of 2020 together with Platforma and other partners, will provide guidance for the decentralized cooperation considering the SDGs principles, as a new way of learning and cooperating.
