National governments play an essential role in the localisation of sustainable
development goals (SDGs), through creating adequate policy environments,
providing financial support, and encouraging and enabling effective local action and
partnerships between various actors in the country. “Localising” the SDGs broadly 1
refers to the “process of taking into account subnational contexts in the achievement
of the 2030 Agenda, from the setting of goals and targets, to determining the means
of implementation and using indicators to measure and monitor progress.” This is 2
particularly the case in autonomous regions with exclusive competences, such as
the Åland Islands, but also at local authority levels.
