The Region of Valencia and the local implementation of the SDGs: A region committed to Cooperation and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

Tools , Available in Español Français

After the new Regional Government of Valencia (Generalitat) was established in July 2015, it adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a framework and point of reference. The SDGs would guide all of the Generalitat's policies and not exclusively the development cooperation ones. To that end, it has encouraged a series of innovative measures, including 1) the creation of official bodies to promote consistency of policy between different Government Departments (Consellerías); 2) actions to inform and raise awareness among citizens, and prepare policy makers for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development; and 3) drawing up of these principles in the cooperation strategy, through a participatory means of devising a new Act, and reformulating its Master Plan. Throughout the process, emphasis has been placed on not simply including entities directly involved in development cooperation, such as the region's NGDOs, but rather a wide variety of Valencian social and economic partners. This document analyses key steps in the process, as well as difficulties encountered, solutions applied and lessons learned. It reflects on some of the pending challenges for the future. The document has been produced by the Directorate General for Cooperation and Solidarity (from the Department of Transparency, Social Responsibility, Participation and Cooperation of the Generalitat Valenciana) and the ART Initiative (UNDP Brussels). Both institutions fully recognize and promote the fundamental role of local and regional governments and other local actors in implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
