OECD synthesis report: “A territorial approach to the SDGs”

The OECD report analyses how cities and regions are increasingly using the SDGs to design and implement their strategies, policies and plans; promote synergies across sectoral domains; and engage stakeholders in policy making. It proposes an OECD localized indicator framework that measures the distance towards the SDGs for more than 600 regions and 600 cities in OECD and partner countries.  

In December 2019, the 2nd Roundtable on Cities and Regions for the SDGs was hosted by the City of Bonn, bringing together representatives from cities, regions, national governments and from the European Commission along with international organizations, networks and other stakeholders. Best practice and experiences were shared and a path was defined to support cities and regions developing voluntary reviews.
