Localization is described as ‘the process of defining, implementing and monitoring strategies at the local level for achieving global, national, and sub-national sustainable development goals and targets.’ Specifically, it includes the ‘process of taking into account sub-national contexts in the achievement of the 2030 Agenda, from the setting of goals and targets, to determining the means of implementation and using indicators to measure and monitor progress.’ The second High-level Political Forum on sustainable development (HLPF) report develops the first report’s analysis by mapping the involvement of the Local and regional governments (LRGs) and their contribution to the localization of the SDGs.
