LADDER Workshop Local Governments as Drivers for Change – Localizing the SDGs implementation through the LED approach – The Eastern Partnership (EaP) experience

The workshop, organized under the LADDER project and coordinated by ALDA – European Association for Local Democracy- took place on the 15th of October in the charming city of Torino, Italy. Different experts in the field, as well as, representatives of Local Authorities (LAs) and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) reflected over ways of promoting and localizing the implementation of the SDGs through the LED approach, an approach that aims at generating sustainable local economic opportunities, developed under a strategically planned and locally driven partnership approach involving public & private actors, academia and Civil Society.

Promoting the role of LAs as drivers for Development is among the main priorities of the LADDER project, role of which is being more and more recognized at European and Global level, following also the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (commonly called SDGs) during the UNSD (United Nations Sustainable Development) Summit at the UN Headquarters in New York in September 2015.
