The event will focus on the launch of the second edition of the "European Handbook for SDG Voluntary Local Reviews" that has been published by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission.
The European Handbook for SDG Voluntary Local Reviews – 2022 edition provides policy makers, urban practitioners and experts with a consolidated method and examples of indicators that European local and regional governments can use to monitor the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Voluntary Local Reviews (VLRs) are processes that encompass both the monitoring and the analysis of the achievements with respect to the SDGs at local level.
Finally, the European Handbook provides new insights into local SDG monitoring, including reference to new challenges and opportunities. The European Handbook for SDG Voluntary Local Reviews – 2022 edition represents a step forward in the support for European local and regional governments in localising the SDGs using the Voluntary Local Reviews (VLRs)
The event will include an extensive presentation of the publication and an open discussion with selected stakeholders among international organizations and experts.
The publication will be available at https://publications.jrc.ec.europa.eu/repository/handle/JRC129381
Indicators included in the Handbook will be available on the Urban Data Platform +
