How to finance the local implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals?

Moderated by Admin, UNDP 2 November 2018 14

To happen locally, Agenda 2030 needs to be sufficiently funded. A clear financial strategy is needed at all levels, including the local one. Localizing finance means not only to assign funds for the local level, but also to create the enabling space for economic development at local level.

To think about how countries and cities can fund Agenda 2030 at local level, UNDP, UN-Habitat, UNCDF and United Cities and Local Governments are organising the Venice City Solutions 2030, an international event hosted by the Italian Association for the Council of European Municipalities (AICCRE) and financially supported by Platforma and UNACLA, with the technical contribution of FMDV. The event will take place in Venice (Italy) on 16-17th November 2018, bringing together representatives of central governments, local and regional government associations, Mayors, Governors and other governmental representatives and selected partners with the objective to think ahead about how to finance the implementation of the SDGs at local level.

To kick start the discussion, the LocalizingTheSDGs Platform is launching an e-Discussion (click here to READ THE CONCEPT NOTE) to engage stakeholders, experts, practitioners and policy-makers in a global dialogue on the themes to be addressed in the Venice’s event. The debate will inform the final report of the activity, to be submitted to the 2019 High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF).

The discussion will focus on: 1. National strategies for financing the SDGs at local level, 2. Measuring impact at local level: the importance of data on budget alignment and tracking indicators, 3. City Solutions, how local governments are making the Agenda 2030 a reality at local level, and 4. Dynamic local economies to achieve Agenda 2030.

To start the discussion, tell us your perpsective and experience by answering to one or all of the following questions:

1. National strategies for financing the SDGs at the local level

  • In your country, is there a dialogue between central and local governments about how to finance Agenda 2030?
  • What are the biggest challenges to define a financial strategy for financing the SDGs at local level? What could be done differently? 
  • How can a local government finance the SDGs implementation? Should central government add a new line of budget to be accessed by local governments to implement Agenda 2030? Or should another mechanism be considered?
  • What is the added value of aligning international funding opportunities with the SDGs? Has your institution allocated any specific budget line to help countries to achieve the 2030 Agenda?

2. Measuring impact at local level: the importance of data on budget alignment and tracking indicators

  • Has your country undertook any reform process of the national statistics system to monitor the SDGs? In particular, has your country established any particular follow-up mechanism regarding financing the SDGs?
  • Has your city established a methodology to measure progress on SDGs locally? Alternatively, how do you plan to measure the impact of public actions to achieve the SDGs locally?
  • What is the mechanism that your country/ institution has put in place to measure the impact of public policies? Is your institution aligning its budget with the 2030 Agenda?

3. City Solutions, how local governments are making the 2030 Agenda a reality at local level

  • What are the specific SDGs and indicators that you have considered as a priority in your city? How have you planned to fund these SDG priorities?
  • Have you initiated a budgetary exercise specifically focused on the SDGs?
  • What are the relations with regional or central governments related to funding the 2030 Agenda? Is there any opening? What are the difficulties?
  • Do you think that the 2030 Agenda is an opportunity for your city to obtain more financial resources? How so?

4. Dynamic local economies to achieve the 2030 Agenda

  • How can the social and economic actors of your city contribute to the 2030 Agenda?
  • Is central government opening the debate and involving the private sector in 2030 Agenda related discussions?
  • Is there any public sector strategy at national or local level to make sure than the private sector, with a special focus to Small and Medium Enterprises including Social and Solidarity Economy actors, feel part of the process of implementing the 2030 Agenda? What are the main challenges for their involvement? And how could they be addressed? 

We encourage all participants to share concrete national and subnational examples, lessons learned and experiences to feed into policy recommendations and guidance for the Venice's event and 2019 HLPF substantive session and beyond.

We look forward to a lively and engaged discussion!

Why do you think investing in cities and territories can help achieving the Agenda 2030?

John Coonrod, Washington United States of America ( 17 Days Ago )

SET A 20% NORM: Policy progress often comes about through setting norms. The Movement for Community-led Development is encouraging a "norm" for the share of public resources in the hands of local communities - with 20% - the level established by Kenya - representing a "minimum standard." In developed countries, nearly 50% of public resources are in local hands, while in sub-Saharan Africa and most of South Asia it is well under 10%.

Santiago Bertoglia, Luján de Cuyo - Provincia de Mendoza Argentina ( 17 Days Ago )

Estimados colegas, amigos, familias: Me encuentro agradecido por poder conversar con Ustedes y esperando trabajar en el terreno ARGENTINA con personal de las Naciones Unidas. Por lo que comentaré a continuación sobre la situación de la corrupción de funcionarios públicos que impide el ingreso de fondos de financiamiento para la implementación local, nacional, de los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible. La corrupción de funcionarios públicos está asesinando a NIÑOS, NIÑAS, MUJERES y HOMBRES en Argentina y estas acciones viene desde muchos años atrás y hasta la actualidad. Por lo que no puedo responder con sinceridad y datos ciertos a las preguntas: 1. Estrategias nacionales para financiar los ODS a nivel local. En su país, ¿existe un diálogo entre los gobiernos central y local sobre cómo financiar la Agenda 2030? ¿Cuáles son los mayores desafíos para definir una estrategia financiera para financiar los ODS a nivel local? ¿Qué se podría hacer de manera diferente? 2. Medición del impacto a nivel local: la importancia de los datos sobre la alineación del presupuesto y los indicadores de seguimiento ¿Ha emprendido su país algún proceso de reforma del sistema nacional de estadísticas para monitorear los ODS? En particular, ¿ha establecido su país algún mecanismo particular de seguimiento con respecto a la financiación de los ODS? 3. City Solutions, cómo los gobiernos locales están haciendo realidad la Agenda 2030 a nivel local ¿Cuáles son los ODS e indicadores específicos que ha considerado como una prioridad en su ciudad? ¿Cómo ha planeado financiar estas prioridades de los ODS? 4. Economías locales dinámicas para lograr la Agenda 2030. ¿Cómo pueden los actores sociales y económicos de su ciudad contribuir a la Agenda 2030?

Philémon MFULUTOMA LUKOKI, Kinshasa Congo The Democratic Republic Of The ( 16 Days Ago )

Oui, car il s'agit de l'ODD 11 de l'agenda 2030 concernant les villes propres et établissements sûrs et résilients demandant aux gouvernants d'assurer un accès à tous un logement et des services de base adéquats à tous nécessitant un assainissement efficace de tous les quartiers de taudis (pour prévenir la santé de ses administrés) et des systèmes de transport sûrs, sécurisés, accessibles et viables à un coût abordable à toute la population sans distinction aucune et de garantir son bien-être , par ricochet le développement durable. Voilà pourquoi les gouvernants doivent financer au niveau local en cherchant les voies et moyens d'assurer un financement nécessaire et requis pour sa population. Le budget national, à juste titre ou décentralisé (local) doit intégrer une quote-part importante de cette donne.

jenifa omolo, kibaha United Republic of Tanzania ( 16 Days Ago )

In improving economic wellbeing of low income people we dedicate 50% of development project’ budget to finance projects from lower level (villages and wards). We also support development of businesses and entrepreneurship by providing education and soft loans to women, youth and disabled (10% of our collection) Kibaha Town Council also has invested in improving transport and communication infrastructures so as to smoothen transportation of people and commodities by constructing new roads. Kibaha Town Council is implementing the SDG #6 of ensuring availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation by constructing and improving water distribution network. see pictures of the projects from link below http://www.kibahatc.go.tz/

Yawo Dodji Mandela DJAHO, Lomé Togo ( 16 Days Ago )

Le Togo dispose désormais de son Plan National de Développement (PND) arrimé aux ODD pour la période 2018-2022. Nous sommes actuellement dans une phase de vulgarisation du PND. Tous les acteurs sont mobilisés à cet effet dont les Organisations de la Société Civile (OSC) qui ont organisé du 23 au 25 Octobre dernier le 2e Forum National des OSC sur les ODD avec des focus sur le PND. Nous sommes également dans une phase de mobilisation de ressources pour la mise en œuvre du PND. Des ressources internes devraient être mobilisé mais le financement extérieur est également recherché. Le pays a par ailleurs amorcé une phase de décentralisation. Les élections seront bientôt organisées et les élus locaux devraient faciliter le développement des communautés par la mise en œuvre des Plans de Développement Communautaires (PDC). Notre problème est que beaucoup de communauté ne disposent pas de PDC et c'est le travail auquel nous nous attelons actuellement au niveau de l'Observatoire Ouest Africain du Développement Durable avec le Projet d'Appui des Communautés à la mise en œuvre des ODD (PAC-ODD).

Ticiana Ponte, Fortaleza Brazil ( 8 Days Ago )

Since October 2018, we have an oficial National Commission (Comissão Nacional dos ODS) for the implementation of Agenda 2030 in Brazil. The commission's Action Plan 2016-2018 establish the strategic actions for the implementation of Agenda 2030 in the states and local government, however it does not mention ways to finance the implementation, at all. Fortaleza is the fifth metropolis of Brazil, even so, the internalisation of SDGs in the local government is still very weak. The local government Multi-year plan is still not aligned with Agenda 2030; the indicators are not the ones suggested by the Nacional Commission for the local implementation. It is importante that the local governments build a public politic focused on the implementation of the SDGs. To have interest in doing so it is important to make clear for the city's administration what are the real benefits, including the possibility to finance the municipal projects, plans and actions. It is taking too long for the strategies of the National Comission to get in the city territory.There is too much bureaucracy, It is time to go straight to local governments for the SDG's implementation, specially for SDG11. The city's Urban Plans should consider de SDG's targets and indicators, the city master plan and sectorial plans are the beginning of the urban public politics. If the SDGs are not contemplated and localised there, it is a lot more difficult to implement and localize later, out of the planning process. In Fortaleza there are many actions and projects that contribute to the achievement of SDGs, nevertheless few are been related to de SDGs. Fortaleza is now in the process of reviewing the Integrated Project for the Management of the Maritime Waterfront of Fortaleza (Projeto Orla), it is already available in the city's hall site, for each action we localised the correspondent SDG target, so in the future it will be possible to publicise to society how exactly each plan's established action contribute to Agenda 2030. Unfortunately it was not possible to align with the SDG's indicators and that weakens the implementation and evaluation of the achievement of Agenda 2030. It is essencial that the local governments have the opportunity to access international funding once it is aligned with Agenda 2030, for that the local government must include de SDG in its planning. This takes us to another issue, the need for local capacitation in the implementation and localisation of the SDGs. One of the strategic action of the National Commission is exactly that. The dissemination in the local government secretariats of the principles of Agenda 2030 and the SDG should be a priority, otherwise we will continue to see the implementation occurring in a pontual form, and not as it should, institutionalised.

DOSSE SOSSOUGA, Lomé Togo ( 7 Days Ago )

Si les reformes ont été bien faites: création d'institution national d'ODDs responsable d'étude des projets sociaux, économique et environnementaux de chaque municipalité. Après approbation le virement est fait aux centres ODDs créés dans la commune. Le rapport financier est envoyé par voie hiérarchique passant par le comité préfectoral, subregionnal et parvient à l'institution nationale
