Multilevel governance concerns the vertical and horizontal integration of governance systems, necessary to enable efficient policy making, service delivery, and cohesive leadership by and among all spheres of governance.
In a world facing increasingly complex crises, our governance models need to be strengthened on the basis of inclusive multilevel cooperation - vital to achieve the New Urban Agenda as well as the Sustainable Development Goals.
The Sustainable Development Goals are the global blueprint for peace, prosperity, people and the planet. SDG localization, the process of transforming the SDGs into reality at the local level and for local communities, is essential for a sustainable future.
Successful implementation of the SDGs locally requires comprehensive territorial approaches through which all spheres of government and all sectors of our societies coordinate their actions. Multilevel governance and inter-institutional cooperation are hence the key to ensuring the SDGs are achieved by 2030 and one of the key principles in which the New Urban Agenda is also rooted.
