Annual Retreat 2022
Workshop: Voluntary Subnational Reviews (VSRs)
💬 Interpretation available in: English, French, Spanish.
🎯 Description: The representation of subnational levels of government in global reporting efforts on the 2030 Agenda and its SDGs has grown exponentially, yet still needs to be reinforced to accelerate action if we are to uphold our global commitments. Over the past two years, local governments associations (LGAs) from 14 countries, from all regions, have reported on the progress in localizing the SDGs through Voluntary Subnational Reviews (VSRs). And this year, 10 more LGAs from all over the world are in the process of developing their own VSRs, learning from the experiences acquired since 2020. While Voluntary Local Reviews (VLRs) are developed by individual LRGs, VSRs are produced by LGAs based on inputs from their members, therefore offering a country-wide analysis of subnational efforts for SDG implementation and reinforcing LGAs' capacities to propel SDG localization.
The aim of the workshop is to exchange on all UCLG sections’ experiences in the mobilization and support of LGAs who have developed, or are developing VSRs, whose active engagement is crucial for articulating this global movement. As well as to open the conversation on how to enhance the global effort to strengthen bottom-up reporting efforts and promote synchronization with the commissions and working groups of our network.
