Reaching the Sustainable Development Goals through Better Local-Level Data: A Case Study of Lumajang and Pacitan Districts in Indonesia
ADB : 2020
The SDGs set global, big-picture targets that nations have committed to attaining. However, unless action is taken at the local level, these targets can never be reached. Localizing the SDGs entails a process of defining, implementing, and monitoring local level strategies to reach global, national, and subnational targets. While local governments are often responsible for delivering health, education, and social services, they can only achieve the localization of the SDGs in collaboration with
other stakeholders. This publication presents a case study in East Java, Indonesia, about ADB’s collaboration with local governments and other stakeholders in monitoring, implementing, raising awareness, and advocating for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by ensuring accessibility of data in a visually attractive and easy-to understand way for different local stakeholders, thereby contributing to localizing SDGs.
