The Roles of Civil Society in Localising the Sustainable Development Goals

Concept notes and papers

The SDGs concern a wide range of targets, including poverty alleviation, economic growth and environmental objectives. National governments, however, cannot realise these ambitious goals on their own. Collective and individual efforts at the local, national and international levels are necessary. Moreover, governments will need the broad involvement of other stakeholders, such as the private sector, the general public and civil society organisations (CSOs). This paper identifies four critical roles that CSOs can play in the “localisation” of these goals: CSOs as the Voice of the Poorest and Most Marginalised Citizens ; Civil Society Organisations as Agents of Accountability ; CSOs as Service Delivery Agents ; Data Collection, Reporting and Monitoring. These roles were discussed and validated by two African think tank dialogues that involved civil society actors as well as other local and international experts.
