In 2019, The Hague Academy developed a tailor-made training programme for GIZ Pakistan on the localisation of the SDGs. The training was delivered to 14 participants from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Ghana, working for different public institutions and universities.
The training programme discussed how donor and development agencies can support a multilevel governance approach to deal with future development challenges and the SDGs.
- Frame the concept of “localising” the SDGs and understand the concept of territorial (place-based) development & its opportunities;
- Define Political Economy Analysis (PEA) and its scope;
- Distinguish different mechanisms for localising development;
- Recognize and apply the Local Governance Institutions Comparative Assessment (LoGICA) Framework to a country/context;
- Identify possibilities and approaches to achieve more sustainable subnational financial resources for achieving the SDGs;
- Acquire knowledge, skills, and tools on how to monitor and evaluate SDGs at the local level to ensure development progress is equitable, relevant and sustainable; and
- Understand how evaluation of the SDGs at the sub-national and national level can draw from and feed into national and global SDG feedback and review systems.
