The Localization of the Global Agendas (Global Report on Local Democracy and Decentralization)

In its fifth edition, the Global Report on Local Democracy and Decentralization (GOLD V) on 'The Localization of the Global Agendas' examines in detail the assessments of the implementation of the global agendas in the 142 countries (representing 86% of the world’s population) that have presented at least one Voluntary National Review since 2016.

To complement these assessments, GOLD V provides an up-to-date global mapping of the processes of localization of the global agendas, and in particular how decentralization and multilevel governance contribute to these processes.

The GOLD V Report highlights how, within the current institutional frameworks, the involvement of local and regional governments in coordination mechanisms and monitoring and reporting processes is essential to creating a sense of collective responsibility for the achievement of more equitable, fair and sustainable societies.
