Localising Sustainable Development Goals: An Inclusive Implementation Process
MILE in partnership with eThekwini Municipal Academy and CIFAL Durban hosted a Brown Bag Seminar on localising Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for municipal officials from key departments within the City.
SDGs are a UN initiative, officially known as transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a set of seventeen aspirational "Global Goals" with 169 targets between them.
On 1 January 2016, SDGs adopted by world leaders in September 2015 at an historic UN Summit — officially came into force.
As part of the Brown Bag Seminar participants viewed a Ted Talk video by Michael Green on "How we can make the world a better place by 2030."
MILE Knowledge Management (KM) Programme Manager, Fezile Njokweni presented the background, scope and relevance of SDGS.
“SDGs will be monitored in South Africa by STATISTICS SA ​.  A National Framework has been developed and adopted. Resources need to be mobilised from local, provincial and international stakeholders/organisations to fund the implementation of SDGs, ”  said Njokweni.
In support of localising SDGs and as a centre of learning in Africa MILE will be hosting learning events as platforms to create awareness and share knowledge.
