The Fifth Local and Regional Governments Forum on the 2030 Agenda will take place on the theme, ‘Fostering the Achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals from the Local Level Towards the 2023 SDG Summit.’ The event illustrate the importance of localizing action towards the achievement of the SDGs.

It will also mobilize messages and inputs from local and regional governments towards the 2023 SDG Summit.
The Forum is co-organized by the United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG), the UN Development Programme (UNDP), UN-Habitat, the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), the Global Task Force of Local and Regional Governments, and the Local 2030 Coalition.
