Recommendations to integrate the SDGs into local party manifestos


In order to develop a coherent and structural policy for sustainable development, elected officials have to know the SDGs and use them when developing policy goals and actions. Therefore, VVSG has developed recommendations for (local) politicians. These recommendations focus on integrating the SDGs into local party manifestos (process + document). Although the recommendations are developed for Flemish politicians developing their party programme for the municipal elections of October 2018, the methodologies and tools can be used worldwide. The publication is also available in Dutch:
