WORKSHOPS OF THE PILOT PROJECT ON MAPPING THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDGS) IN TURKEY

Sustainable Development Goals, which highlight that development should follow a more sustainable pattern, is now at the agenda of municipalities in Turkey.

Launched by UCLG-MEWA in July 2018 and financed by World Academy for Local Government and Democracy (WALD), the Workshops of the Pilot Project on Mapping the SDGs in Turkey are continuing at full speed. In the workshops conducted in all geographical regions in Turkey, the municipal staff are getting informed about the international agendas, and the municipal works are being aligned with the global goals. In addition to the previously organized workshops in Mezitli Municipality, and Mersin Metropolitan Municipality, 11 new workshops have been held in Zeytinburnu Municipality, Karesi Municipality, Seferihisar Municipality, Çanakkale Municipality, Ordu Metropolitan Municipality, Nilüfer Municipality, Sancaktepe Municipality, Pendik Municipality, Eyyübiye Municipality, Şişli Municipality, Gebze, and  Selçuklu Municipality.

Within the context of the workshops, municipal staff are also being informed about the background of the Sustainable Development Goals, the Habitat Process, the New Urban Agenda as well as the content and scope of the Global Goals. Firstly launched in Turkey and planned to be disseminated throughout the MEWA Region, the project aims to contribute to the Voluntary National Reviews prepared on Global Goals and presented to the United Nations. It further seeks to provide necessary knowledge for municipalities to frame their upcoming strategic plans in accordance with the 2030 Agenda.

In the Project Closing Meeting to be organized after the completion of workshops, key partners and stakeholders will come together and determine the road map for the period after the finalization of the Project.
