The SDG "localization" and the 2030 Agenda requires the provision of capacities and tools to enable local authorities, representatives, and development actors to integrate the SDGs into local level planning, budgeting, monitoring and reporting, so that they can implement their programmes and communicate their results to National Governments and the international community in a credible manner.
