Congress President takes part in UN sustainability forum

A delegation of 17 local and regional elected officials, including Congress President Anders Knape, actively participated in several thematic debates at the High Level Political Forum, at the United Nations in New York, as part of the PLATFORMA network, which brings together local and regional authorities and their national, pan-European and global associations.

On 16 July 2019, the President of the Congress addressed the session entitled "Local Action for Global Commitments", which focused on the territorial dimension of the SDGs and the question of their financing at the local level.

He also took part, on 17 July, in a "Voluntary National Reviews Lab" aimed at examining progress at the national level but also how national governments can support the localisation of the SDGs by engaging local governments and local stakeholders in the process and integrating local data into their strategies.
